Celebrate


Hey guys,


I hope you guys have checked out http://www.stampingbella.com/ for the colour challenge. You still have time to participate till 5 P.M. tonight, and have a chance to win some Bella Bucks.


I wanted to post this card 'cause I thought it would make a great masculine card. This card was published in Scrapbooks and Cards magazine . I designed 20 different cards using this one stamp . I love using the faux tearing technique and I LOVE Stamping Bella Celebtate 3 liner words stamp . This happens to be the Celebrate which could be used for any occassion.


I used low tack masking tape that I tore on one side, and put it down on the card to form a rectangle. I then used a stipple brush and Marvy ink pads . I stamped the 3 liner stamp two times with brown ink. I wanted to anchor the Prima flower so I chose a brown circle to mount it on, and a bronze brad to put in the center of the flower. I also edged the cream card stock with a Krylon gold marker.


Thanks so much for coming by and please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.


Hugs

Nicky

Another lovely card, Nicky. I'm thrilled that you showcased a masculine card - they're always a challenge! Thanks for reminding me of the masking technique - I'll have to use it more often as I just love the effect.
