I have a card with a masculine touch to share today!
I used JustRite's new cling stamp set, A Day in the Country, for both my image and verse. Both are stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo on Kraft paper. The paper color adds a different tone to my Copic colors. See photo for the colors. I wanted a soft watercolor effect. The colors are definitely soft, sort of washed out.
After coloring the barn scene, I cut a frame with Spellbinders Labels Eight on the outside and Labels Eleven for the inside edge. I used Kraft card stock and distressed it a bit with Antique Linen. The verse was stamped on Kraft paper, too, and then cut with a Spellbinders Petite Ovals die template. I forgot to make notes for sizes...ooops.....and I left the card at Fond Memories so I can't even check it!
With the paper still in the oval die template, I colored the inner area with Copic B52. I added 2 little brads at each end and mounted it with foam squaresfrom Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. The DP papers are from Fancy Pants' Hot Chocolate collection. A striped ribbon covers the meeting of the papers under the frame. I rubbed on a little Antique Linen along all the edges of the card, too.
Come back on Thursday for the Spellbinders' Holiday Hoppin' blog hop! It starts at 8:00 a.m.
