Misty Tango

As soon as I saw the cool sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week, I wanted to use Gorgeous Grunge and make a masculine card.  I love square cards and I cards with images off the edge!  This sketch is a match made in heaven!  In fact I love this sketch so much I made two cards - not intentionally - but my first card looked too big so I made a sized-down version as well.

I combined the sketch with the colors at Stampin' Royalty and the Masculine theme at SUO Challenges.



Here's the Papa card - he's 5" square.  I stamped Off the Grid in Basic Gray stamped off twice, then over-stamped with various images from Gorgeous Grunge in Marina Mist and Tangerine Tango.  The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes is stamped in Basic Black.  Now here's the Baby version.



I actually like the proportions of the baby card a bit better.  This card is 4 1/8" square.  Here's a photo of them both together.  I think I might go make a Mama card now using this week's colors from Color Throwdown LOL.






Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Off the Grid; Gorgeous Grunge
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Basic Black
Ink:  Basic Gray; Basic Black; Marina Mist; Tangerine Tango

Cheers
Karren
