A new technique for me!

I tried the bandana technique today. It's gonna take a little more practice to look really good, but I'm pretty happy with this result - and as always it looks better in person than it does in a photo.

I used a brayer to ink my Spellbinders Paisley Impressability before embossing the red card stock. I then went over parts of the design with my white gel pen, adding dots, lines, etc. I used just a strip of the result on my card, matting with black and tying a black gingham ribbon around the strip. The sentiment is Hero Arts Thoughtful set, inked with black craft ink and clear embossed.

I think this is a more masculine kind of card. After searching through all my cards the other day, I realize I need to make a lot more masculine cards. Obviously I am drawn to flowers and feminine images and colors. Today - I went more masculine.

I hope you like today's card. Have a great Monday!
