Cards for Men Challenge - Tuesday 27/4/10
The topic for the Cards for Men Challenge this week was "monochromatic". I normally shy away from topics such as this but part of these challenges in the blog world is to challenge you - and this one did!! I used some Red Hot Bed Spanish images I've had for some time in various shades of orange and teamed it up with two different shades of pearlescent papers. The die-cut images I popped out and then got my distress tool to them and then ink the edges with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink - you'd never guessed I liked them would you? I decorated the inside of the card like I normally do as I think a nice inside and out makes the card better.
This card also fits the following challenges:
Crafty Angels - Summer
Flourishes - Vintage
Quixotic - How distressing?
Lili of the Valley - Here comes the Summer.
