I’ve really enjoyed creating some more masculine cards recently – I’m finding the Swirly Birds stamp set and Swirly Scribble framelits lend themselves extremely well to this. I also think that two of the new in-colours work brilliantly for this – Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy. I was playing around with these colours a few weeks back, and this is one of the cards that I didn’t happen to feature in the Stampin’ Creative blog hop:
This is an easy, CAS card, I think. The base is Emerald Envy, with a whisper White mat. I stamped the sentiment from Watercolour Wishes (of course!) in Archival Basic Black first, then stamped the large solid swirls in Emerald Envy. Next, the outlines in Dapper Denim and finally I filled in with the small swirl, also in Dapper Denim. I tried not to overcrowd it. To add a bit of interest and texture, I cut one of the swirls out using the Swirly Scribbles framelit dies and layered it over the central Emerald Envy swirl. As usual, I constructed with tombow. That’s it! Hope you like it.
Come back on Tuesday – it will be my 100th blog, so there will be blog candy on offer!
