This week I decided to get some inspiration form the lovely DT over at Retro Sketches.
Here is the sketch they have up this week and you can see their post here.
I have a few male cards to create so here is my "male" take on the sketch:
For this card I used one of my favourite MME paper collections - Stella & Rose. I just love the teal and mustard colours combined with the greys. I wanted to create a grungy distressed look so out came the edge distressor and the sand paper.
I sanded the edges of the fish tail banner pieces which I cut free hand. As I cut them I made sure my cuts overlapped so when I sanded the pieces the cuts became more visible and added to the grunge feel. I also sanded the rub on that I used.
To add some dimension to the card I mounted the banner pieces and solid stars with foam tape. I also added a hint of sparkle to the solid stars with a gel pen.
Paper: MME Stella & Rose 6x6 paper pad and basil cardstock
Dies: MFT Stacking Stars
Other: Button MME Hattie "Remember", Twine from Taylored Expressions, Rub on from The Paper Company Personalized by You range.
