Masculine was the swap theme this month, and that is always a challenge! I literally went to my shelf and started shuffling through all my sets to see what could work masculine. I ended up going back to this color combo discovered recently, Not Quite Navy & Soft Suede and used the Wanted set. Here is what I came up withThe card base is Soft Suede. The background Not Quite Navy layer was textured in the Big Shot with a Texturz plate. I sponged the edges of the NQN with Soft Suede. The horses were stamped on Naturals Ivory by inking the stamp, starting on the right edge of the cardstock and inking full strength, then shifting left and stamping again without reinking. I stamped the horse 4 or 5 times, depending on the spacing. Most of the last one is under the saying. For the "good luck" I stamped with NQN ink on Naturals Ivory and punched with the Designer Label punch. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede before layering onto a 1-3/8" NQN circle and then onto a Wide Oval of Soft Suede. A Soft Suede ribbon is layered under and attached to the Naturals Ivory cardstock before layering onto Soft Suede. Lastly, a Star was stamped in NQN on a scrap of Naturals Ivory and punched with the Star punch. A vintage brad was put through the center and attached with a glue dot.
Hope your week is going well! Too much mud here, but otherwise not too bad!
