Design It Monday

Hi PRS friends, Lisa here today! I have a fun masculine card to share featuring the Happy Art and Sketchy Alphabet stamp sets. Lets get to it!

My thought process was to make a wreath from the splatter image (Happy Art). I began with the large circle (Happy Art) stamped with light gray ink. Using the same ink, I stamped four splatters trying to keep even intervals. I followed suit with the green, then light and dark aqua inks. I liked the way it looked but thought the open triangles would add even more interest. It’s personalized with numbers (Sketchy Alphabet) for a birthday, but a sentiment would look terrific in the center too.

Finally I adhered some light gray patterned paper to ground the image. It also brings out the light gray on the front of the card a bit more. And well, if you know me, you know I like patterned paper!!
