I can't believe I have been gone from my blog for a week! Felt good to get back in my little card room to get creative! First on the agenda: making a card for my husband's bestie (although I'm pretty sure they don't call each other that!) whose birthday is coming up next week. And I really wanted to play along with Lisa Arana's Wanna Sketch #7 challenge again this month. The bigger challenge - making a guy card! They are SO HARD to make! But using Lisa's sketch was a huge inspiration and I was actually able to come up with something I didn't mind! Those occasions seldom happen in the "guy card department"!!
Here's the sketch:
Lisa's take on it is awesome - you have to check it out!
And here's my take:
The gray background is just laying the paper into wet ink - it gives such a cool look. I stamped the hexagons in versamark and white embossed them. Made my own little happy birthday banner, added the clip from Paper Smooches (I've been wanted to use that for so long!), a few sentiments in red, yellow chevron stamped 3/4 across the panel and some polka dots from TAWS. Finished it off with some splatters.
Hope you're enjoying your day! Thank you so much for stopping by to see me!
