WCC17 --- Wood you be mine?
It's time for another Watercooler Challenge and this time it's all about Valentines. I wanted to make a Valentine that would appeal to a man and decided to use the Wood You Be Mine? stamp set as well as the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. Inspiration came quickly because those pictures in the Paper Stack just lend themselves beautifully to a masculine styled card.
I chose to use a background of stacked wood. Perfect, I thought, with the axe from the stamp set and the sentiment "Wood you be mine?" I began with a base of Naturals White and worked my way up with layers of Basic Black and Real Red. I decided to have the sentiment in a word bubble (thank you, Word Bubble Framelits) and used Basic Black and Real Red to mat it for fun. I stamped the axe image and fussy-cut it before colouring it with my Blendabilities and a bit of silver from my Stampin' Dazzle Marker.
The sentiment and the axe are raised on Dimensionals to make them pop. Three little hearts cut from a piece of Red Glimmer paper using my Confetti Heart Border punch finish up the card.
