Heylo all :)
When Deepti from Catchy Designs asked me to Guest Design in her latest challenge, I was beyond thrilled :) I love her work and love her stamping style. You all know how partial I am to stamping.. And I love her doodling, she isn’t afraid of free hand drawing and experimenting. Fabulous combination I say :)
The theme for this challenge is Masculine and only cards are allowed. And here is the yummmmmy inspiration. Gorgeous huh :)
And here is my take on it. My dad’s birthday was around the corner and I made this for him. All supplies linked below.
I was inspired about a lot of things in the inspiration picture – apart from the obvious of course. :D
The red and black panel on the left reflects the brick wall, the clock representing a Birthday and the same colour as the hunk’s golden skin, the green backdrop is from the grass and don’t miss the three birds from the lamp posts.
And yes, I had to make a one layered card… but the collage-ing is a new one to me. I am so glad I tried the layering-collage effect. I loved making this card.
Now, off you go and play along. I can’t wait to drop by and see what you create. I think this inspiration has a lot of potential. I know I would be playing along again.
