It's a chilly one! Thermometer reads -18 deg C this morning. Brrr! In looking at the Sunday forecast for St. Catharines, Ontario (my hometown), they are having spring-like temperatures! Really missing home right now... Although, I shouldn't really complain. We have had a pretty mild winter for the most part.
As I was crafting last night, I decided to combine two different challenges -- The Colour Q challenge and the Retro Sketches challenge.
In looking at the inspirational photo and colour combos, I right away thought 'masculine'. And the sketch, being quite clean and simple, made it easy to come up with a design. Here's my card:
I used Natural Composition DSP for the card base. This designer paper is a great collection - each sheet has an embossed pattern on it and the paper is a little thicker than other designer paper, almost like cardstock. I thought it would be perfect to add a bit of texture to this simple card design.
At first, I wasn't too sure I liked how it turned out. Maybe it's because it is so simple. (I like using lots of layers on my cards). But, every once in a while, simplicity is a nice change. :)
Stamps: Loved Ones
Paper: Natural Composition DSP, Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: Framelits Die, Daffodil Delight button, Linen Thread, Rhinestones
Thanks for looking! Have a blessed Sunday!
