Two posts in one night! Wheee! I actually stayed at work until 6:45pm, purging my classroom of paper and stuff that I have been carrying around for at least 5 years! It felt so good, like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders! As a reward for my clean classroom, I decided tonight I would stamp my heart out...and so here we are...Card #2.
I was intrigued by the unusual sketch at Paper Smooches! The sketch was so different for me and I didn't know where to start!! I have 2 Paper Smooches sets (so far) and the one I picked up this Christmas in San Diego is a masculine set called MY GUY that has proven to be VERY useful!
I used some My Mind's Eye Designer Paper called Portobello Road (I love this 6x6 pack!). I embossed the gray paper with my woodgrain embossing folder that I have had for a million years, I think it was one of my original purchases when I began stamping! The red pattern paper is an old piece of SU! scrap and the fish is cut out of the silver paper and paper pieced...and popped up on a dimensional. My father in-law is a great fisherman and I know he will love this card for Father's Day! I am really happy with how this turned out...I would love to know what you think!!
I am also playing along with the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog-Red, White, Gray
CASology-RED-I used red as my accent to make the sentiment stand out and to accent my design
CAS-ual Fridays-Black and White plus 1-I used red as my accent (I do have gray as a neutral...not sure if that is ok?
