{The not so} Daily News Harald

Just a quick post to participate in the Design Team Inspiration Challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey. For my card, I chose Maile Belles as my inspiration. I adore her CAS style though I'd never be able to keep things that simple myself. Well, ... and that is exactly the story of this card:

"man" card for a 50th birthday (obviously)
It all started with Maile's card here. Instead of using an impression plate for the background, I stamped the card base with BB: Newsprint and smokey shadow ink. Also, since I needed a masculine card, I changed the color scheme. Next, I wanted to glue everything down and call it a card... but then, I decided to use some green spray mist on the background... THEN, I found the green too heavy and sprayed a light yellow mist on top. Better. Umh, how about a little sewing...? What about impressing the numbers...? You see, I just keep adding - and still think, there is a little something missing. Oh well, it's a guy card. Less is more here, right? :)

Stamps: PTI Background Basics: News Print
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow
Cardstock: PTI Stamper's Select White, Simply Chartreuse, Enchanted Evening
Other: PTI By the numbers die, PTI Impression Plate (woodgrain), PTI Mat Stack die, sewing machine, foam dimensionals, Studio Calico Mister Huey (lemonade, clover)
