Happy Friday, peeps! It's my turn to create a "recipe" for you at As You See It! I always struggle with creating masculine cards, so here's a recipe to get you started:
And even though this was my own challenge, I struggled with it as well! This is the third card I created for the challenge...the other two were not so great, LOL! So here we go:
I started with a 100 Proof Press image, stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock, then diecut with a Stitched Shapes die. The papers are from Photo Play's Autumn Day. I embossed the rust-colored piece with the retired Basketweave EF, then added some stitched embossing on a Soft Suede strip as well. For some added interest, I stamped some barbed wire (retired Yee-Haw) along the edge, and added a twine "lasso" behind the cowboy image:
The sentiment, stamped in Terracotta Tile, is from the retired Picture Perfect birthday:
My sketch is from Try Stampin on Tuesday:
I am also adding this to Just Add Ink this week, which is to "add L"! My "L" is a lasso!
I hope you'll play along with my recipe this week...be sure to check out what the designers created, and share yours as well at As You See It!
So let's see Cassidy's final result! She really liked doing the splatter work, so this time, we watered down some white craft paint and she splattered that on her finished card:
After we dried it, she peeled off the letters:
Much better results!
She added a white heat-embossed sentiment at the bottom (the same as my card above), then added some numbers and a little hand-written sentiment on the inside!
She was happy with the end results, learned some new techniques and we had fun! Thanks for indulging me! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
