brrr - well I hope everyone enjoyed last week's Just Add Ink challenge, every morning here for the last two weeks has been white with frost so it certainly felt very appropriate to me :) Having said that the kids and I did have a fun time out at the park today and it actually wasn't too cold, and it was very nice to get out in the sunshine. So on to this week. This week at Just Add Ink we have a sketch for you - here it is.
Apologies for the dodgy lighting - I'm really struggling to get good light at the momment!
First I went through my stash to find some DSP that I thought would be appropriate. That helped me set the colours for the card. So off I went cutting, adhering DSP, then sewing it down. With guy cards I try to add as much texture as I can, so the stitching was definitely an important part of the design of this card, as is the textured Chocolate cardstock for the bottom central mat and numbers and the striped grosgrain ribbon. I also added some piercing detail and some hardware - well a guy card needs hardware ;) doesn't it! The inside was just finished off simply to match.
There I did promise you wouldn't get a Christmas card this week I hope you enjoyed the change :)
