Doubling up again!!
I'm back with another entry that I combined 2 challenges for: Pals Paper Arts 190 color challenge and CCMC 289 sketch. When I looked at the color challenge I thought everyone would be doing something for females or a valentine theme and decided that since we have so many men in this family that I would further challenge myself to create a Manly card that wasn't a valentine theme. I have this retired stampin' up set - All Aboard that I immediately thought of with the gray the Blushing Bride and the Rose Red were the big challenge. Decided to sponge them in for a sunset background to the train. The diagonal piece worked well for the train track stamped in gray with gray sponging to soften the white. I tried one train on a piece of blushing and didn't like it so I decided to put it on white and pop it up as a central point. I used a plain gray piece and the Banner Blast set from the Sale-a-bration and the matching punch for the banners on the main panel. Thanks for taking a look, what do you think of my Manly vision on these 2 challenges?
