I have entered two challenges on this one post, so please scroll down to see my entry in the Secret Sister Saturday Challenge which is anything but a card.
As many people know, my favorite color is blue, but with so many color combo's who really can have a favorite. Lately, I am trying to work outside the box and use warmer colors. I am loving the green's and rust together especially for a masculine card. So I am entering this in the Just Magnolia/Hangler Stangler Challenge this week.
This is my first Hangler Card.. I don't have any stamps and won these images from my dear friend Tammi. She has an awesome blog, and does wonders with her copics. She truly is an inspiration to me.
My girlfriends and I get together and "scrap" together every once in a while. I did this card while we were together. Since they knew I was doing this for my friend John's Birthday, I didn't add any flowers, but they knew I wanted to. Again, I wanted to give it a more masculine feel. So my, girlfriends and I kept joking that when they left I was going to add flowers, but they teased back saying that the next time they saw him they were going to ask him if there were flowers on his card...lol... So I was a good girl and left it alone, using buttons for my accents.
This fits the following challenges:
Totally Paper Crafts Add buttons
Just Magnolia/Hangler-Stangler Favorite Color Combo
Paper: Basil CS: Burning Ember, DP: Cosmo Cricket Happy Camper/Want S'more?
Extras: Doohicky Swirl Die, Buttons, Twine, Corner Punch
Image colored with Copics
I found this in the clearance section of a local craft store. It was a black memory book that begged to be altered. After seeting all of Stacey's aka Twins Happy lovely altered books which she did quite a while ago, I knew I had to give it a try. I would have loved to pick up a few more, but unfortunatley they only had 2. I am still trying to purge my papers and not purchase more (lets see how long that lasts, have to go to Michaels later...lol), So I used a 4 x 6 paper pack from DCWV where some of the papers are flocked.
This is for the: Secret crafter Saturday Challenge Anything but a card
