Our challenge this week, hosted by Heidi, is one that really does challenge me - the Masculine Challenge.
For my project for this challenge, I used a background I had made using some non-Stampin' Up inks that are really fun to work with.
The colours reminded me of a fall sunset. And make me reach for my Sheltering Tree stamp set. In keeping with a fall theme, I stamped the leaves by inking the leaf stamp with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke. The trunk and branches are Early Espresso.
I did not use all those colours on the stamp at the same time. Instead, I used my MISTI and applied one colour at a time in random spots and stamped. Then repeated the process with each colour. The beauty of the MISTI is that the cardstock and stamp stay in exactly the same position so it is easy to restamp.
To finish off, I used a strip of DSP from Painted Autumn and a piece of the Copper Trim, stretched out a bit. The card base is Always Artichoke and the sentiment is Early Espresso.
