Hello, everyone! Michelle Lupton here today, to share a card I have made for this month’s challenge theme, which is “Masculine”.
Now, I am just like a LOT of card makers – I struggle with masculine cards. But the Triangle pattern stencil from Hero Arts made my job that little bit easier.
I fixed the stencil above my white cardstock, and used an ink blending tool to add some Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink – stronger in the middle, fading towards the edges. I then cleaned my stencil before putting it back exactly in the same spot to add some Versamark ink over the top of the coloured triangles and clear embossed. I then moved the stencil and added more Versamark and clear embossed again. I then added more Distress Ink in Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch over the top of the embossing. This gave a dimensional, layered look to the pattern.
I then took my “Thanks on a line” die from Simon Says Stamp and cut it out of my patterned piece. I also cut a piece of black card and cut it with the same die and used it to create and inlaid die look. I affixed it all to a white card base and added a strip of black top and bottom, and I was done!
