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.
