Second post of the day as I catch up on a few challenges. This is the problem of working full time - not enough time for crafting during the week.
This card is for 2 challenges - Cards for Men - Sketch Challenge and Die Cut dreams - Quote. See the end of the post for the links.
I started off with the cream, hammered card blank A5 in size. The background is a piece of kitchen roll which was used for moping up the craft mat when I was using glimmer mists in tones of brown. This was trimmed to size to give an even border all round and mounted in place with double sided tape.
The quote, from a chap named Sydney Bremer, is an Elusive Images stamp. The balloon, the checked background and the sentiment are from Creative Expressions.
The checked pattern has been stamped in black archival ink onto wood veneer which has previously been sprayed with Glimmer Mists. The balloon as done in the same way.
The quote was stamped in black archival ink on satin card which had been previously brayered with ink from a Big and Juicy ink pad. The sentiment was stamped onto the same type of card which had been sponged with the same colour as used on the quote.
The quote and the sentiment were matted onto a copper coloured textured card which I have had for ages and I haven't a clue where I got it from. The same card was used with an oval Nestability to cut and emboss the shape as required by the challenge sketch.
Everything was mounted onto the kitchen roll background with tape except for the wooden elements for which I used very large, strong foam pads.
