Hiking

Today I did a morphed version of the Jenny's Coat technique (Dec 2009/Jan 2010 TJ Newsletter). Instead of patterned paper, I used newspaper. The challenge at Fashionable Stamping is Make it a guy thing. I used a stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms of a man hiking with his dog as my focal image. I stamped it on newspaper using embossing ink and embossed it using clear embossing powder. I used a rainbow pad to brayer the ink over the panel. Of course, the embossed area resisted the ink. The card base front was embossed in a Cuttlebug folder and then highlighted with distress ink. I used a gold outline sticker which I distressed with a black paint dabber for the sentiment and attached faux brads on each side of the image. I think the result is a guy card.
I am also entering my card into the City Crafters challenge which is colors of the rainbow.
