Hi there. Another card for you today – totally outside my comfort zone:
I received this stamp set from the sale of stash Justine Hovey was having. Concord and 9th City Scapes. Not a stamp and die set I had really thought of, as I struggle with scenes, and still find them very difficult to layer and get right.
When I saw the colours for the current Color Throwdown Challenge, I decided that now was the time to use this set………..and to create a card with a more masculine feel with these colours.
I used Distress Oxide in three purple colours for the background – no water splatters this time.
The main stamps were heat embossed in grey as I knew I wanted a distressed water-colour effect for the buildings – using Altenew water-colour pan set for the grey colour, and the rusty hinge Distress Oxide for the – well – rust colour in the house windows.
The sentiment is cobbled together from a couple of stamp sets, and heat embossed in white, on the grey die cut tree layer. I didn’t stamp the trees – I just drew a black line within the images with a black gel pen.
My difficulty was the layers – were to place them, how to place them, how to stick them down – all took a whole load of thinking and sorting out – some die-cuts were put to one side for another day………..kinda!
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – rust, purple, grey, white
Daring Cardmakers – card for a male
QKR Stampede – anything goes
The Male Room Challenge – anything goes for a male with a twist of no designer papers
