Manly Cards & Tone on Tone

Yesterday I taught class, but before I left for class I played with two cards. One for the Manly challenge at Hero Arts and the other because Shari Carroll on the HA blog had created this white canvas previously which was so beautiful I have been wanting to play with a white or ivory card.

This is my manly card. I have made masculine cards before that were east and this one became too pretty. (So I added sticks) that should make it more manly. Ha!

  • Hero Arts - Designblock - Floating Leaves
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
  • Hero Arts Birthday Messages
  • Hero Arts - Three Designer Leaves
  • Versamark watermark ink
  • Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
  • Ranger Distress Ink - Shabby Shutters
  • Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Twigs
The second card was an attempt to use all one tone. I started with Ivory and added a few white touches and a slightly darker tan cardstock.

  • Hero Arts Designblock - Birds & Swirls
  • EK Success - Border Punch
  • Prima Flowers
  • Crystal Stickers - Pearls
  • Ribbon Unknown
