I chose to create a card with the May "Make It Masculine" theme. And what a paper, am I right? The paper is called Clockworks and is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. I love this big old pattern of the inner and outer workings of a clock, with all its gears and gizmos.This concept of time can be used in birthday, friendship, even sympathy cards, as well as many other projects.
The image I used for my card is Scribbles Designs' #800 Treasure Chest. I colored my image with colored pencils to get that weathered look just right. Here's where digital and handmade come in: I digitally placed on my paper a couple shapes (heart & star), then printed it. I printed the treasure chest twice so that I could cut out parts of the second image to give it more dimension.
I love using Scribbles Designs' Treasure Chest with the sentiment above: There is no greater Treasure than a Good Friend". What a perfect pairing, right? Since this card is going to a veteran I met at the VA hospital, I kept the design simple.
So that's MY take of the Scribbles Designs Year in Review. Are you going to play along? You have 14 days in which to capture your Muse and shake some inspiration from her (kind of like pixie dust) and link it to the challenge blog. Happy crafting!
And a Happy New Year to you, too!
