There is a new challenge up today at The Challenge, and this week it is all about color! The colors tend to lend themselves to masculine cards, imo, and since I am masculine card challenged, I decided to add another guy card to my stash with these colors~
I used a simple banner image to create my pattern. I started out with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock and my Misti. While the Misti does wonders in getting the image straight and where it needs to be, I still have trouble with thinking through stamping complicated designs- such as this one.
Thanks to a couple of mistakes, I ended up cutting my background out as two separate pieces. I did not like the way they looked on a white background (not masculine enough for me) so found this wonderful dp that worked perfectly. As the card morphed from one design to another, I lost sight of the end product and needed a sketch. The new sketch at (CAS)E This Sketch was perfect, when flipped~
As the card came together, I made more changes, including taking some liberties with the sketch. Not even sure it is CAS at this point! Anywho, I finished it off with a sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and my fave twine, Hemptique.
Check out the rest of the amazing inspiration from the rest of the talented team!
Happy Crafting and have a Blessed week!
