Addicted To Stamps And More #261...

Hi! This week at Addicted To Stamps And More we have the easiest of challenges.

You can create anything for this challenge and link it to our gallery!

I decided to create a masculine card inspired by autumn colors.

I started with the Painted Alphas stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps. I love the bold alphas in this set. I lined up the letters to spell the word HAPPY and stamped it a few times with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to get a good, dark impression. Lining up the Mudra alpha stamps is super easy as they are cut to align at the top and bottom.

I took out a few Memento dewdrop ink pads and stamped the circle from the Grunge Effects stamp set by Mudra around the edge. I then used the Ferns and Leaves set and stamped the images in black. I used the Simple Alphas set again by Mudra to stamp the word 'birthday'. Initially I stamped it in dark red. But changed my mind and used black. Luckily I was left with a halo of dark red around the word which I really liked. 

To finish I simple trimmed the panel to size and mounted it on a black card base.

Here is a closer look at the card.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Please do check out the ATSM blog for more amazing inspiration by my talented team mates! I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful entries in our gallery.
