Go Riders Go!

After a LONG wait of 18 years, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have won the Grey Cup!! I went to a house party to watch the game with about 20 people or so, and I made this card to thank the hosts.

I used Wild Wasabi paper for the card base. I printed off 6 copies of the Rider logo (I only needed 4) to do the masks.

First, I cut all around the whole logo, and sponged Wild Wasabi ink on the cardstock using this mask.

Then, I cut out the S, and used this mask to sponge Whisper White craft ink onto the card.

I used white embossing powder over the S to make it really stand out, and to blend with the other embossing I would be doing.

I cut out the green sections of the logo, then used my VersaMark stamp pad to stamp in the holes, and I embossed with clear powder to make the wild wasabi really stand out.

The last mask had the silver parts removed, and although I did use it with the Versa Mark pad, I had to go back and fill in some spots with the VersaMarker, so it probably would have been easier to just use the VersaMarker from the start. I then embossed with silver powder.

I finished the card by using my Blender Pens, and the Pastels to colour in the black lines, and black sides of the logo. If I had the markers, or if I could find my sharpies, I probably would have used those, but the pastels worked okay. I had originally thought I would then go back and draw in the white accents on the sides with a white gel pen, but I think it looks okay without them, and I was scared I would wreck the card if I messed up the accents.

Great card. I'm so excited they won also! If you brave the cold to go to Taylor Field (aka Mosaic Stad) - I hope you don't freeze to death!
