This week, I was invited by Shirley (wannabcre8tive) to join her for the F4A313 and to make a masculine card with a heart on it. Looking at this set, it was a no-brainer, just had to come up with a design using the stamp set and EF appropriate for a male card. Here is the challenge thread - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...s-t607700.html
My base is Vanilla, with a layer of Lost Lagoon, then a vanilla layer embossed after brayering INSIDE the front to give me a defined outline of the world, which I also sponged around the outside - I know there is a name for using your EF in this way - just escapes me at the moment. From there, I simply stamped the heart and the compass, punched them out, and cut some simple banners, using my buddy Nancy's favorite item - corrugated cardboard - in the strip across the bottom and again as a banner at the top with the other banners. Added a glittered Black brad and that's all she wrote! DONE!!
Hope you will come to see all the cards made for this challenge and add one of your own making - we would love to see what you do!!!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!!
