WWC280 - Kath's Challenge: Anything Goes with a Masculine Twist

Hello and welcome.   We are making "masculine" cards this week at The Watercooler Wednesday and this is my design team card.  I was in need of some masculine get well cards and came up with this idea.  
I started by stamp block inking, but I used a minimal amount of water to get this speckled look.  I made a similar background (same ink color but more water here).  I trimmed the panel down and then inked the edges with the same ink as the background to give the panel a bit more definition.  I added a sentiment and then stamped, Copic colored and die cut the plant and snail and attached with foam tape.  I like how the card turned out.
Supplies Used:
Altenew Garden Grow
Papertrey Get Well Soon Sentiemnt
acrylic block to stamp the background
Altenew Sand Dunes Crisp Die Ink for background and edges
Copic Markers
Neenah cardstock
Foam tape

  2. Lovely card, the little snail is so cute! Thanks for joining in at Cardz 4 Guys.

  3. Great card Karen, love that background - I always use too much water.

  4. That's an interesting way to create a background. I've never tried that before. (I followed your link to the other card - also stunning!)

    I like the ink color you chose. It looks like dirt that spilled when the plant was re-potted. The snail is an adorable touch!
