Here is this week's color story:
And here is my card:
I always have trouble with masculine cards so I took advantage of the rich colors in the inspiration photo to make a much needed male birthday card. I started with a 5 1/2 square card base of GKD Smoky Slate and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Oxford and My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Sunshine 6x6 pads. I stamped the image from an old SU set called Thinking of Father with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White and colored with Copic markers. I sponged around the image panel with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to give an aged look. Some Glossy Accents on the watch face and glasses and a bit of twine finished my simple card.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with this week's Card Patterns Sketch Challenge card! Have a great evening!
