I am back with a plate of leftovers......that is, a card made from scraps leftover from my most recent card. I had some bright yellow and green strips left on my craft table that got shoved next to some dark midnight blue ..............(brilliant flash) .............I think that looks like an arrow for a masculine kind of card!!! So....voila! Here's what I came up with.
Now for those of you who know me, you are probably thinking this card is very out-of-character for me. And you'd be right ..... seeing as our family is about as sporty as a set of placemats! Ha. But there are occasions when I need a card for a young man and I think this will be nice to have on hand.
I used the Kelly Purkey Game Day stamps set I won months ago from Simon Says Stamp (THANKS, SSS!) for the white embossed numbers and the Super Star greeting. I watercolored the letters with my waterbrush and Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy ink pad and I also applied Glossy Accents for extra shine.
I also got brave and did some faux stitching with my Sakura Gelly Roll white pen. I think the "stitching" really adds to the sporty look.....but what does a placemat know???!!
I gave this card dimension by popping up the greeting panels and the arrow with 3-D foam squares and finished it with a few shiny stars.
You can compare this card with yesterday's card and see that I have a very similar color scheme, although the blue is much deeper and more masculine today. Amazing how much difference it makes!
It also perhaps fits even better with the current Just Add Ink Color challenge (choose 3 of the 5) than yesterday's card did!! So I am entering today's card, too! :)
Hope you enjoyed having leftovers today. I think I need to challenge myself to do this more often!! I always have scraps leftover, but usually they sit around for a long time before I use them. In the future, I will try to turn right around and do a leftover card whenever I can.
