A masculine card...

Hi! I am here today with a masculine card. The card is based on the inspiration pic at the Create Something Catchy Challenges: CSCC #3.

I was very inspired by the colour palette and also the layers of garments. But what really caught my eye was the design of the shirt fabric. So here is my take on this pic.

I tried to create the look of the shirt fabric using the dip dyeing technique with a thin mulberry paper in cream.

The cream card stock has a subtle texture, which is unfortunately not visible in the pics. I gave it a curve to mimic the look of the jacket.

The sentiment is stamped using a Micia stamp set and purple ink from Faber Castell. The small buttons  from my stash which I saved from old shirts were the final touch.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Create Something Catchy Challenges

Stampavie and More
Challenge #211 - Boys

Casual Fridays

I used 3 buttons

A rather quick and simple card which is perfect for a guy. Would love to hear what you think of it.
