I have two very similar cards to share; I wanted to enter a challenge and was not sure about colours and layout so did two with the same stamp.
This is the one I have chosen and only because it's more masculine looking than the second one. I used the same Popcorn the Bear image and sentiment for both cards and embossed them both with Stampendous Black. This is a blue 15cm square card blank with smaller mats of blue paper which were magazine freebies. I used Dewdrops and butchers twine from the Ribbon Girl and the blue ribbon was from Crafts 4U2 Do while the buttons and brown eyelets were from a set from Caroles Crafts.
Promarkers used: Burnt Umber,Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Putty, Sky & Royal Blues, Tulip Yellow, Magenta, Cocktail Pink & Bright Orange.
This version used a 15cm square white card blank and a mat of Lasting Impressions Smooth Sailing cardstock. The image and sentiment were matted onto blue coredinations cardstock. I punched an oblong from blue floral paper from Caroles Crafts with Debbie Moores Punch Anywhere Honour Punch and placed this under the image mat just to alleviate the 'plainess'; I used a vellum based saying mounted on Smooth Sailing cardstock and tied with a knot that I saw in Creative Cardmaking Issue 24, using the same blue ribbon as before. I decorated the card with flat-backed pearls and PM Aqua dew drops.
Promarkers Used: Slate, Warm Greys 5,4 & 2, Violet, Purple. Caramel, Cocoa, Tulip Yellow & Bright Orange
I would like to enter the first card into the Paper Romance Challenge #33 which was to make a masculine card.
