A Humurous Masculine Card

More rain and cool weather here in Ontario which means the A/C is off once again. It was nice out in the sun today but a bit cool in the shade when the wind picked up.

I think we all have that one friend or relative who refuses to grow up so I made a card just for that type.

The image was coloured with pencils and blended with gamsol. The sky and ground were chalked. The sentiment started out as a gold peel-off but gold would not suit here so I went over it with a blue alcohol marker to change the colour. You did know you could do that, right? Silver ones are easier to colour but the gold does work almost as well. I wasn’t sure what to use as background paper but I found that bottom piece in the stash so I sponged Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake over the top of the dots to hi-lite them a bit. For the top piece, I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped a couple of very old Stampin’ Up stamps on it….one says Howdy and the others are just dots and markings. They were stamped with Crumb Cake as well. The blue cardstock that mounts everything is from the stash as well. The sentiment was computer generated. Everything was then mounted on a Kraft card base.

That’s all for a sunny but cool wind blowing Monday, June 26, 2017.
