Just popping in again today to share the masculine card I made last night for Susan's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge to make a one layer card for a guy. I used the beautiful wplus9 set guiding light to make my card.
I was totally inspired by this tutorial I came across on Crafting the Web. Theresa used Memento cantaloupe, tangelo, and potter's clay for her inked background and her card is absolutely stunning. I was curious to see what those colors would look like sponged on a kraft card base. While I do like how it turned out, I think it is missing that luminous quality achieved when inking on white and letting some of the white shine through.
I added some hemp cord and probably should have just done a knot since it's a masculine card, but I rather liked my bow and didn't want to take it off!
