My littlest sis asked me to make a card for her hubby's 30th birthday. (Being 99.9% sure he never checks this blog, I figure I'm okay to post it a few days early, hee hee!)
So, necessity meets challenge. Or, challenges, in this case. I'm entering this card into the Play date cafe challenge:
and also, since Lawn fawn is sponsoring their challenge this week, why not create with LF's stamps and post another entry to the current Lawnscaping challenge:
Without further ado, here's what I came up with:
I thought the Play date colors were perfect for my masculine card! I added grey as a neutral, and just a hint of blue in a text-y sky background. I really wanted to let those colors stand as the focal point of my card!
Here's a closer-up view of the text background: I stamped "enjoy the ride" (a sentiment from LF's "admit one") repeatedly using tumbled glass distress ink (which I first stamped off onto a scrap paper so that it would be very faint in the background).
The ferris wheel (from the same set), was stamped in memento black ink and colored in with copics. My green "grass" was stamped in versamark ink with an image from "schoolhouse backdrops" and given a stitched-treatment to frame it out.
Thanks for looking!
