Good morning! I hope your week is off to a great start. It's time to share a new color challenge for the ColourQ! If you haven't finished up your Father's Day cards, these colors should get you started.
I can always use a few masculine birthday cards in my stash. For me, that usually means some woodgrain, a bit of distressing, a strong focal image, and a simple sentiment.
I started with a Bravo Burgundy card base topped with Cajun Craze and PTI's Spring Rain panels. The blue cardstock is debossed with woodgrain and distressed around the edges.
I stamped a sentiment from PTI's Mat Stack 1 Collection in terracotta ink and added gray stamped lines from Faux Ribbon. I matted the sentiment strip with Basic Gray cardstock before adhering it to the card.
For the focal image, I die cut and stamped the large maple leaf from PTI's Leaf Prints and adhered it with foam dots.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze, Basic Gray), Papertrey Ink (Spring Rain, white)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Leaf Prints, Mat Stack 1 Collection, Faux Ribbon)
Ink: Clearsnap (Terracotta, Antique Pewter)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (leaf die, woodgrain impression plate), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
I hope you'll play along with us at the ColourQ this week! Have a good one!
