Hi there! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed some great Black Friday deals! I had some sick kiddos, so I wasn’t able to shop like I thought I would, but we had a delicious dinner on Sunday with my mom, husband, and the kiddos! I have another project that was in the Season of Wonder Hero Arts catalog, but it fits perfectly with Man Card Monday! Who doesn’t love a llama wearing a scarf, right?
I began by stamping the Color Layering Fa La Llama using Wet Cement, Cup ‘o Joe, Charcoal, Red Royal, and Intense Black inks. I die cut it using the coordinating dies. For the greeting, I stamped the “fa la la la llama” from the Color Layering Fa La Llama set and added some pale gray music notes.
To create the background, I first heat embossed the beautiful Garland Bold Prints stamp using gold embossing powder. I then blended Red Royal and Fresh Lawn inks, being careful not to let the two colors touch in order to keep things from getting muddied. I then spritzed the entire background with some of the beautiful White Iridescent Shimmer Spray from Hero Arts.
After the Shimmer Spray had dried, I mounted the die cut and the greeting on the front using foam tape for extra dimension!
Well, that’s all for this month’s edition of Man Card Monday! Cute critters in primary colors definitely equal masculine to me. Now, I have some information about some Cyber Monday deals going on today!
