Sometimes its difficult to think of card styles for young teens or a favourite nephew. This sneaker stamp from Deep Red is a great bold image to base your design on. In the sample below, we used Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn direct to an acrylic block. You will want to stamp off lightly once and then stamp the block onto your white panel. We then stamped the sneakers three times in Black VersaFine. The finishing touch is the Distress Spritz using the Salty Ocean marker. The spritzer works best if the marker tip sits about an eight of an inch longer past the marker ledge. When you squeeze the ball, you need a fairly short and fast movement so the air can actually blow the ink from the marker. If you hold the spritzer close to your cardstock, you will have quite a burst of colour. If you want a finer spray, work about an elbow's length away from your cardface. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession and it works for all ages of people.


This distress spritzer will work with any of your markers. The barrel piece even comes out to allow for wider markers, like a Copic Marker.
