Hey, Hey, It's Digi Day!
Hey there!! Only one more day until Friday, whose ready for the weekend? I am!! It's been a busy week and I'm looking forward to a few days of rest. Whose with me?? :-) Well before we get to the weekend, we get to enjoy another Sweet 'n Sassy digi day over at SNR and PCP. Today's challenge is to create a masculine card and with Father's Day just around the corner, it's the perfect time to pull out those manly cards. I created a card for my Dad (gee, hope he's not ready the blog today...close your eyes Dad!) using a retired acrylic stamp set from SNSS. I love lighthouse images and think they're a perfect choice for masculine cards. Instead of coloring in the entire image I decided to create a color background, using Distress Inks. I used a blending tool to add the ink after stamping the image. The edges of the cardstock have been pierced and distressed. (Whole lotta distressing going on!) The striped paper is a new line from Ruby Rock-it that I picked up at Wholly Scrap. The sentiment is from Papertreyink, as are the buttons. And I included a Happy Father's Day sentiment inside my card along with a few paper scraps! Be sure to check out the SNR and PCP pages for the full challenge details and to be entered into the drawing for free digis! Enjoy!
