Just a quick post today....I belong to a group of SU demos called "No More Bad Swaps"; a name that is bound to make people sit up & take notice, but it just means we are committed to quality in our swaps. They have a weekly challenge, found here, which I have just not had the time to play, but today's was a sketch. Since I suddenly seem to need some sympathy cards, I decided to use the sketch and make some clean & simple, masculine cards. I used cards that I had already had cut, but hadn't used, from my last stamp club; the DP is from Autumn Vine and Ski Slope from the new Holiday Mini; and the image is from Pocket Silhouettes, which I can't seem to get away from! Sentiment is from Fresh Cuts. I wanted to use something like "thinking of you" but I cannot find one stamp set that has that sentiment in my whole SU collection!!!
I used Chocolate Chip & Sage Shadow markers to give the silhouettes two colors; the jumbo eyelet was set with my crop-a-dile, and the ribbon is the new Sage Shadow grosgrain from SU. Clean & simple. Be sure to check out the samples on the NMBS blog! TFL!
