Hi!! It's time for another Embellish Color challenge. This time we are invited to create a card/ project using the colors in this lovely image plus dimension (foam adhesive). The moment I saw the colors I new I wanted to create a masculine card. Especially with one of the next grand celebrations being father's day :)
My creation is simple and would work great not only for dad's but for a boys birthday. I created a different kind of trim hoping to create a masculine detail. I cut out a strip of cardstock and with a standard size hole punch I made created the fun border. I didn't want to leave the little holes empty so I pierced them for added detail. To balance the colors in the card I cut out a green and terra cotta extra fine strip of cardstock. The little boat was hand drawn.
Over all I am pleased with the design. The background as you can see is not the tidiest ;) Not because it's hard to stamp but because I was lazy and didn't remove the stains from my acrylic block, that impaired my vision and didn't allow me to align the images accordingly. Lesson learned? You bet :)
Thanks for coming by. Sorry for disappearing on you. I'm in the process of moving again. So I won't be here as often. But do know that I'm am still working on some fun projects :)
