Today the fabulous Cindy Haffner is hosting the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!! Of course she always makes it fun and today she is challenging us to use *Designer Paper*!!! Now, I realize that Designer Papers are about as necessary to card making as Spellbinders die cuts, but there is a lot that you can do with Designer Papers. You can stamp on them, use border punches, color them, paper piece, die cut shapes, cut out images to use as a focal point, or just to enhance the look of your card. Whichever option you choose to do, we would love to see what you create.
I love Designer Paper, but I must admit when it comes to coordinate them I usually shy away from using them....one of my card making downfalls :( - LOL!!!
Another thing I shy away from is making *masculine* cards.....I guess I'm more a girly girl card maker - LOL!!! So - for this Challenge I figured I get over it and tried to combined both *dislikes* into one card - LOL!!! Let me know what you think???
For this card I used the the masculine DP from SU - Manchester that works perfectly with the new Flourishes Set - A Man's View.
The Sketch I followed is the WSC84.
I stamped the chair image in Baja Breeze and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip. Next I distressed the edges with the PTI Vintage Cream Ink Spot.
For more masculine touches I added the Chocolate Chip Ribbon and the Copper Hardware.
Hope you'll join us this week???
