Nope. Not having any such thoughts. 🙂

Went back to card making after quite a break and decided to start with masculine themed ones – playing with three challenges this time.

Less is More 28 – One Layer Card – USE INK ** This does include ink pads **

A Passion for Papertrey – CHALLENGE: FOR THE BOYS!

The challenge at LIM was also to try and use ink/ink pads in a new way. So I went quite graphic!
I used three colors of distress inks and swiped it directly on the card base in two directions – dusty concord, dried marigold and crushed olive. Used Modern Basics motif to add some interest 🙂 Sentiment from the PTI anniversary set.
For now, I was happy with the way this turned out – funky yet graphic yet has color 🙂
What say?
