It's Not All Black and White

Following Footsteps

I have another one of those difficult masculine cards for you today. They're so much easier when you've got the right stamps, and this set from Lizzie Anne is just right. It's called A Man's Sole.

I made this earlier in the week for Splitcoast's sketch challenge. The green dotted paper is from Lizzie Anne's Winter Wonderland Pretty Papers pack, the solid green is Core'dinations sponged with some close to cocoa ink to go with that "manly" look. Once again, necessity was the mother of invention. I didn't have any space left for a sentiment, so I thought to use the clear acetate layer right on top of everything. Palette's noir ink worked well with sufficient drying time.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend.

What's In It?
Stamps: A Man's Sole
Paper: Winter Wonderland (Lizzie Anne); close to cocoa, very vanilla (SU!); green (core'dinations)
Ink: noir black (Palette); close to cocoa, chocolate chip (SU!)
Accessories: circle dies (Spellbinders); paper piercer and template (SU!); acetate; licorice brads (Lasting Impressions)
