Stamps in Disguise

Today's Limites supplies challenge 192 is a doosey! At least is was for me! I was pretty much stumped until I remember that I had to make a guyih card for my sister FIL...he let me go to the Redskins football game with them FREE of charge...that deserves at least a thank you card! So I thought today's challenge was perfect!

So what did I come up with and what set did I use? I know the set is probably not even recognizable, but it's called Lifes a Breeze by Stampin' Up! and the sentiment is from a retired set called much appreciated. This card was super easy to make...the sketch was from a sketch challenge over at Angelosity (she's celebrating her 18 days of Angelosity and trust me you don't want to miss the chance for the AWESOME prize at the end!!!) and I simply embossed the main pannel and then tied some ribbon, stamped the sentiment and worked on the focal image...I wanted this card to not be too froo froo cuz it is a guy card...hints the minimal layers!

I choose these colors because they are the colors of our beloved Skins! For the main image I stamped the water tube on shimmery vanilla cardstock using craft ink...immediately after stamping it you use an aqua painter or brush and color the whole thing...covering the hole. I then inked my stamp again and rock and rooled the stamp to give it more texture...added the laced and did some sponging and called it a day!


Stamp: Life's a Breeze, Much Appreciated

Ink: Craft Chocolate chip

Paper: Bravo burgundy, more mustard, shimmery vanilla

Accessories: More mustard ribbon, big shot, tree branches cuttlebug embossing folder

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my stamp in disguise!

Happy Stampin'

May God Bless you today and Always!
