Tune in Tuesdays ~ Masculine Cards with Debra Miller

Monday, March 28, 2011

Marvelous1_djmiller Happy "Tune in Tuesday"!

Today the theme is Masculine cards. I have a Masculine card/mini album to share. I used "Marvelous You" T-3406 from the Fall Supplement.

This is one of the images Mischelle featured in her TAC Caboodles Coloring class. The mountains are amazing...feathered top down with blues, blue-violets and grays; feathered up with grays and browns. Loved learning this coloring technique. I added some blue chalk to the sky and inked around the image with Cognac and Burnt Umber palette inks.

Marvelous1a_djmiller I used "Penelope" Soar With It Collection and cardstock today. I added faux stitching around the striped cardstock with the ScorBuddy and ScorBug and finished with a twill bow. Twill is a marvelous option for a masculine card.

Inside, I continued the Penelope stripe with the faux stitching. The opposite side is kraft cardstock.

Marvelous3_djmiller I colored a second image, then used a 1.5" diameter punch to punch out the bear. I inked the edge with Burnt Umber ink and mounted it on a tag from Penelope. Then added an antique copper eyelet.

Supplies -- Stamps: T-3406 Marvelous You; Papers: Penelope SWIC and cardstock, Kraft cardstock; Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Cognac and Burnt Umber; Pastel Chalks; Copics: E21, E55, E57, E59; W3, B41, BV31, BV23; YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97; ScorBuddy; ScorBug; Natural Twill; Antique Copper hardware.
