Hi friends! Can you believe it's Monday again? That means it's time for another Woodware challenge! This week we're sharing masculine cards, a category that's always tough for me. I pulled lots of earth toned scraps for this card and used an image from Woodland Mushrooms. I was originally going to stamp it with black ink and color it, but then I got the idea to try stamping it with my gradient ink pad by Adirondack (Cabin Fever) and I really loved the result! I think it adds to the earthiness and simple always seems better to me with masculine cards. I die-cut the focal point with my Nestabilities and traced around the same die onto some brown cardstock and cut it out by hand. I love that the matting compliments the die-cut and isn't the same exact shape, only bigger. (See how the corners are rounded on the mat? A happy accident- I will definitely be using this tracing technique again!) The sentiment is by stampingscrapping.com (love their Nestie-matching stamps!) and I added a blue ribbon to finish off the card.
I hope you'll have some time to show us your take on this challenge! Add your card here:
