Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Cox and Cox....I thought that this rug was so cool, with the blended colors and copper colored fringe. For my card, I began by copper embossing the Grunge Cross onto white cardstock. (Though this stamp set and coordinating die are retired from Our Daily Bread designs, I will not get rid of them since they are some of my faves for masculine cards.) I normally would have created the Wrinkle Free Distress background first and then added the copper embossing, but I am so happy that I did the embossing first. Once the inks (navy, green, brown) were smeared and spritzed onto a craft sheet, the raised embossing on the cardstock limited the saturation of the colors. I love how it turned out!! The inked panel was matted in white to balance the un-inked portions of the panel. A separate cross was copper embossed, inked in the same manner, then cut out with the coordinating die and popped up with foam tape. Brass brads and a metallic copper layer, along with a navy card base, rounded out the design.
Thanks so much for visiting with me today!
