Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #4


Morning, well... today is the next challenge over at the Paperbabe Stamps blog...

We have a Sketch for inspiration and wait to you see the amazing projects from the team to help spark your creativity...

I interpreted the sketch slightly differently, by changing the scale of the layers, the base layer is ribbed background heat embossed, the edges ripped and torn then the whole piece inked as a resist. The circle is the ornate frame, so it fits on my card front, it's been slightly inked and distressed. The deer from reindeer fusions is one of my favs, I've stamped him onto kraft and trimmed leaving a slight border so it looks like a die cut.
The happy sentiment has been stamped onto wood paper and cut in a 'manly' ribbon. You can just see the 'birthday overstamped on the 'happy', it looks better IRL! Finished off with a wooden button.

Thanks for stopping by, there's new stamps arriving next week so hope you visit the blog for sneak peeks and inspiration!

I'm entering into a few other challenges too...


Have a wonderfully creative weekend

What a great masculine card! I love the distressing and the use of the frame to shift the focus on the deer!

What a great male card and so beautifully made. Well done. Love the embossing and the image, an animal we don't see in Australia but which is so majestic.
