Number Celebration

Hi!  It's Friday night and I took a bit of time after dinner to make a quick card for a few challenges.  This card uses the inspiration pic at Time Out Challenges, the masculine theme at Just Add Ink, the Numbers cue word at CASology and the Around the Corner theme at City Crafter Challenge.



Clearly I was inspired by the colors at Time Out.  I kept my main image to the bottom right corner of the card and used a numbers stencil.  

I laid the stencil on a piece of white card and spread Versamark ink direct to paper on top.  I then white embossed.  After that, I used some acetate and distress inks to smoosh the inks over the embossing.  

The sentiment was die cut and layered up with three white layers and one Lipstick Red.  To finish off the card and keep it masculine, I used some enamel dots.  The whole layer is popped up on the card base with foam tape.

And that's it!



Thanks for visiting.

Ink:  Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, Versamark
