Week of the Man!

My second post today! Woo hoo, go me! :)

Well it seems that everyone is onto Masculine cards this week! I have started playing along at a blog called Cards for Men, so this works out perfectly for the rest! :) The challenge this week was to make a card primarily green. Here is mine!


The layout was from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge. The main image panel I stamped on glossy paper using the large Meadow from Stampscapes and adding the bear from the Stampin' UP set Yukon. I colored it with dye based inks with a blender pen and sponges. I sealed it with Pearlcote Pearl Glaze, then backed it with black. I made a 5" square card base out of old olive cardstock and punched out four 2" squares from certainly celery cardstock. I used a black pen to create the "stitching." Used Versamark ink to stamp some leave on the certainly celery. It was lacking something so I decided to stamp the oak leaf from Stampin' Up set Lovely As A Tree. I cut it out and put it in the upper left hand corner with a pop dot.


Challenges this fits with:

Cards for Men - Green challenge
Rosie - D's Challenge - Just for Men
Crafty Creations - Stitching


Wow, that sure is a lot! Guess that goes to show you I have been browsing way too many blogs! I hope everyone has a great day!
