Wonder - Masculine Collage
Happy Friday!! I've got a different sort of masculine card to share with you today. There are some guys who don't fish or hunt or play sports, and this card really fits the bill for them. This stamp set, called Find Your Way, from Class Act (click Chapel Road line, then Collage section), has this wonderful collage image as well as several sentiments.
I used a fun technique called Deconstructed Collage (from Technique Junkies) to give the collage a different look. Then I added the sentiment with a hardware frame and a bit of hemp twine sticking out of one end. The hemp twine was wrapped around the background layer, and this helps to ground the card.
Are you ready for a long holiday weekend? Ready to fire up that grill and let the kids run through the sprinklers? Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
