Today I needed to make my nephew a birthday card QUICK! I have to get it in the mail tomorrow if I want him to get it on time. I always keep blog challenges handy so that I can use them for a jumping off point in creating cards, especially when I need something in a hurry. Today I decided to use the sketch challenge from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog. I am using the current sketch #91. Here is the link: http://atlanticheartschallenge.blogspot.com/2015/01/sketch-91.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+AtlanticHeartsSketchChallenge+%28Atlantic+Hearts+Sketch+Challenge+%29
Here is my take on the sketch. I kept it pretty literal for time's sake.
I also wanted to use the current stamp of the month from CTMH which is "This Moment". The real challenge was to try and make a masculine card out of a mainly Valentine themed stamp set. I think I did okay with it. The "happy birthday" stamp is from the CTMH stamp set called "Holiday Tags Occasions". I also wanted to use the new paper pack from CTMH called "Heartstrings" which is also very Valentine's Day themed. I think it turned out masculine enough. I used the matching CTMH inks in slate, lagoon and cranberry. I distressed all the edges with a brown ink, too. Thanks for stopping by.
