I decided to make a male/masculine Friend Card using paint, ink, embossing and had lots of fun.
Supplies: HA Large Open Flower, Friend sentiment - HA promotional set CL284,
Friend Definition Stamp, clear embossing powder, Versamark ink,
Adirondack Acrylic Paint dabber in Sail Boat Blue, Faded Jeans Distress ink,
Spellbinders Labels 14, Dark Chocolate ink, ribbon and cardstock by PTI,
ink blending tool by Ranger, Tim Holtz Alterations - Scallops, Dark blue cardstock
by Canson, pop dots and adhesive.
I stamped the friend definition cling stamp with versamark on white paper and embossed with clear ep. Then I put a layer of watered down Sail Boat Blue acrylic paint on top and wiped some of the excess paint off using a baby wipe. Then when dry I inked the edges with distress ink - faded jeans. I layered it on some co-ordinating cardstock and used a Tim Holtz die to created a dark chocolate scalloped edge.
I added the "friend" sentiment from Hero Arts set CL284 and stamped with faded jeans distress ink over the open flower image already stamped and die cut with Labels 14.
I am entering it into this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge
I was so tempted to add buttons, bows etc but decided to leave it as it is ... I know the men in my life say they prefer it "clutter free" LOL!
Thanks for peeking. Hope you have a great day.
