For this week's Masculine Monday card I'm playing along with a challenge blog that I always find inspiration at. The Cards 4 Guyz blog is worth checking out if you haven't already done so. This go around the theme is
Halloween or Autumn Thank You
Since I never send out Halloween cards I opted to make an autumn thank you card.
I used the Leaf Motifs stamp set from CP Designs
and distress inks for the inside of the leaves and the overall background sponging effect. I like the little bit of imperfections I get when stamping with distress ink onto regular card stock.
I used Soft Suede ink from SU for the leaf overlay and to sponge the edges and Early Espresso, also from SU for the sentiment. I used my MISTI for the sentiment because I knew I wanted to stamp it a few times so as to get a really dark brown.
and thanks so much for visiting!
