Colour Blocked Speed
I am certainly on a roll with the man cards these days! I often have trouble coming up with simple designs for men...I usually end up distressing and sponging and layering like crazy when trying to design something masculine. Today's project, I'm proud to say, is super simple! It also is suitable for this week's Masculine challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Check it out...
I often forget what great stamps my clear mount blocks make. For this card I created colour blocks using my A and B blocks. I then stamped the car using my new basic black ink pad (love it!!) This is a quick and easy way to add colour to a line-art image without actually having to colour it in. Super fast! The DSP is from the Big Top Birthday pack...going to miss that one come June 1st (but I'll get over it in a hurry...there are some GREAT new papers in the upcoming Catty). I embossed the background with the houndstooth embossing folder and tore away a corner so that the sentiment (from the Word Play set) could peek through. Fast, easy and cool enough for any teenaged boy.
