This card was started for a challenge, but I already know it will be a perfect card to send to my brother come July.
The card started with the inking challenge at 365 Cards (day 6). I bought the tree stamp when it came out but hadn’t inked it up yet. Since I was using the tree, I thought about making a card for my bro, so I wanted a masculine color scheme. I found the perfect scheme at ColorQ (cqc22). The images are huge (which is good), so I wasn’t sure how to finish up the card. That was when Jen del Muro’s Saturday sketch came to help (sfytt31).
I am really really happy with this card. The picture just doesn’t do it (maybe I’ll try again in the daytime) – the colors and the texture work so well together.
