Our Creative Corner, and this week our hostess, Diane Gilbert, has a fun sketch challenge for us. I decided to do a masculine card with the stamp set Uncharted Territory. I used colors from another challenge blog, Hand Stamped Sentiments. The combination is a cool one: Real Red, Pear Pizazz, Pacific Point and Early Espresso.
I stamped the lighthouse on white card stock in espresso, then highlighted just a few areas of the image with markers. Since I was doing a masculine card, I used torn edges instead of a border punch, and I picked twill tape instead of ribbon, adding a red button (retired) tied with hemp twine for an accent. The background is from the In Color hostess paper pack and the sentiment from the hostess set Afterthoughts. I couldn't decide which color(s) to use on the sentiment, so I used three! I simply colored the top half of the "birthday" with the red marker and then filled in the bottom with the blue. The curly label punch and Movers & Shapers gave me my fun sentiment shape.
You'll want to be sure to visit the OCC blog and see everyone's creations for the challenge - and then play with the sketch yourself and share your creativity with us!
