This is one of my favorite cards. It was actually so simple to do, but the colors make it.
I stamped the odd man, also known as The Scorekeeper by Stampers Anonymous, on white card stock that has a bit of glisten to it. I then embossed the O and the title Odd Man Out with Turquoise Tapestry embossing powder by PSX.
I painted the background with Radiant Pearls Sweet Apricot and Sour Lemon. I am not sure that Radiant Pearls are still being manufactured by Luminarte. They add pearly color as they dry on regular card stock, but require special treatment if used on glossy. These paints do not evaporate, so they must be embossed or absorbed by the paper.
I bought a few colors of the Radiant Pearls when they first came out, but have been disappointed with the paint settling and separating in the bottle. Now I have switched to Primary Elements and Twinkling H2Os in the interest of working with stable materials. The colors are lovely in everything that Luminarte makes.
I mounted the game guy cockeyed on navy textured card stock, and like the play between the blues and oranges and yellows on the card.
