OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Masculine Cards
This week's Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home's Stars & Stripes is a Masculine Challenge, where we are challenged to make masculine cards using any theme. I hadn't done OWH sketch 213 yet, so I decided to use that for my layout. Papers are from My Mind's Eye Spice 6x6 paper pad. The heart is from Inkadinkadoo and the sentiments stamp is from Technique Tuesday's Date Night stamp set. Dies used are Spellbinders circle dies and My Favorite Things Fishtails.
I love this sketch, but I really struggled to get everything in place! I finally just made all of the elements one structure so I could lightly traced around the inner corner of the left rectangle and across the top banner in order to stamp the sentiment where it belonged. I then erased the lines and glued down all of the elements as one piece.
The sun is playing hide and seek today, but I think the rain is holding off, so a walk with my two big dogs looks like a possibility. Hope your day is going well and thanks for visiting my blog!
