Different Kind of Card

Hello there,

It was Crafty Devils meet today and I set the challenge of a monochromatic, male card that had to have 2 layers but no DP's!! Yes, everyone hates me!

This was also a different type of card for me as I was trying to get a sepia look. Would love to know what you think of my attempt!

I used my new Grand Calibur to emboss a panel big enough to cover a 6" card blank card, the first layer is the argylle Mica Mask and the circle is big squares, both are then coloured with distressed inks. I also distressed all of the edges.

I coloured the Sugar Nellie image with promarkers, satin, tan and cinammon. The ticket is from Tim Holtz.

Here is a close up of the image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Sugar Bowl - sketch and theme of distressing or vintage (must use a SN image)
I Did It Creations - monochromatic
Sentimental Sundays - (sentimentalsundayss54) must include a sentiment
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - distressing

As always thanks for stopping by.

Patsi xx
