Hello, happy hump day! Today's card was created for the latest The Male Room card challenge. As soon as I saw the challenge I knew I had to use the Art Impression Catching Z's stamp set. Their stamps are always so full of fun and whimsy and I thought this would make a fun card for any male occasion. To create my card I started by layering some patterned papers from the Little Yellow Bicycle Fern & Forest 6x6 paper pad onto my white card base. I die cut more of the same patterned papers into nesting circles using some Little B nesting circle dies and layered them directly onto the card base. I added some black dashed lines around the inner rectangle panel and the inner circle panel as well. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Slang Gang stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink for a nice, crisp look. I then stamped the Art Impression image onto some Copic-friendly cardstock, colored it to compliment the patterned papers using my alcohol markers, fussy cut the image, and popped it up off of the card using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I added a few 6mm black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off my card. I love how it turned out and hope you like it too!
