***Scroll on down for my Mojo Monday card***
I'm so excited to share that I was the winner at The Challenge last week (with this card) which means I have the honor of guesting with their talented design team this week! Since it's week 4, the challenge is a masculine photo inspiration.
I was immediately drawn to the vintage feel, the fact that it was a wheeled focal point and the most obvious...that wonderful red pop of color! Here is my take on the photo inspiration...
This retired SU image reminds me of my dad's old pickup truck and thought it would be perfect to create a Father's Day card. After die-cutting a white watercolor CS panel using a wonky stitched rectangle die (Lil' Inker Designs), I added Barn Door and Pumice Stone distress inks for the background. I then partially inked MFT's Burlap Background stamp with Early Espresso ink (SU). The gear collage stamp is from MFT's Collage Backgrounds set - stamped twice using a MISTI and Early Espresso ink. Fired Brick, Hickory Smoke and Black Soot distress inks were used on the truck which was then fussy cut and popped with foam tape and has Crystal Effects added to the hub caps and windows. I silver embossed the sentiment on vellum and embellished with Tim Holtz' Mini Gears.
STAMPS: Loads of Love (SU), Burlap BG and Collage Backgrounds (MFT), World's Greatest (ODBD) - sentiment.
I'll have to admit...creating masculine cards is a real challenge for me, so I'm really anxious to see how others interpret this photo! I tend to gravitate to flowers in the majority of my cards and they simply don't work for men - lol!
