I decided to try and use one of the current Hero Arts sketches for a masculine birthday card I wanted to make.
Paper: card stock (PTI); patterned paper ( Bella Boulevard); watercolor paper; Neenah
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Chipped Sapphire, Brushed Corduroy & Walnut Stain distress ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL579; CL340; CL480)
Other: brad (Recollections); dimensional squares; corner chomper; black enamel accent
The sketch makes provisions for a ribbon or some twine tied in a bow but I wanted it to be more masculine so simply opted for a brad.
I water coloured the chair with the various distress inks, trying to make it look well worn. Not sure how I really feel about the end result, but it's growing on me!
Wishing you a fabulous day!
