Happy Sunday Friends and Welcome Back to the Blog!
While hubby was busy watching College Football yesterday, I got busy creating a few masculine birthday cards using a VERY OLD stamp from a company that's been out of business for several years now. The stamp is from the GM Series - 1955 GMC Truck and the company was Cornish Heritage Farms ... remember them??
Here ya go . . .
After coloring my image using Tombow markers, I went through various paper pads to find green background panels that I thought looked masculine and came up with these two.
On this second card I felt the background panel also needed a black matting but didn't want the weight of yet another panel so I took a black marker and carefully went around the outside edge. Viola! I also used the excess ink that was on one of my green TH ink sponges to add color the the white panel my truck is stamped on.
Here are a couple more in a different color . . .
Once again going through my paper pads and came across these stripes & dots panels which were actually double sided so played around a bit for my background designs.
A few little dots of black Nuvo Crystal Drops was all the added embellishment needed on these two cards. Guys don't like a whole lot of 'fru fru' on their cards so I've tried to keep these relatively simple in design ... letting the old truck take center stage.
Challenges to share in:
Today's another Football Day so I should be able to get a lot more cards done again today. My first craft show is Nov. 6th so time is ticking away!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you've liked what I had to share today.
As always . . .
