We just moved and I have not made cards for 2 weeks! I finally got a chance today and so I made up for lost time!!!! I used 3 challenges and I made 4 cards. I wanted to make a bunch of cards for the people who helped us move! I hope they are kind of masculine!
The first challenge is the "kissing technique". Full directions and details are on this post at Splitcoast Stampers. I inked up my solid images from "Wild About You" with one color (yellow, green or kraft) and then inked my "Woodgrain" stamp with a darker color (orange, dark green and suede). You press the inked stamps together and then stamp onto paper. The woodgrain was a fun one to use because then I could add fun texture to the animals. Here are the four animals I did...
Here's the full set of four! I placed the sentiments and brads slightly different on each to accomodate the images. I used 2 clean and simple challenges - "at the zoo" and "green, chocolate and ivory". It was great to make some quick and simple cards.
Here's a close up of the one. It is kind of hard from any of these pics to see the texture on the animals. The animals are all popped up on dimensionals. I used the stripes embossing folder for the green layer.
