Today marks the last day of The Craft's Meow release. I sincerely hope that you had the time to check out the new stamps so far! I can honestly say that it's one of the coolest releases to date...Today is no different, we're introducing two awesome sets called Retro Foundations and Typically Teen, both designed by Karen Baker. Karen outdid herself with them, and she also made me very happy with the bold sentiments and timeless designs.
They're both perfect for masculine cards, especially Typically Teen, which is full of grunge elements.
I should mention that Typically Teen will be your free gift for May, with every $50 purchase from the TCM Store!
Cool, huh?? Just a simple stamping and a single brad (My Mind's Eye), and the effect is so fun.
My inspiration comes from the FTL191 sketch and ric#12 (colours/design). I'm also entering the card into the Spatter Technique Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
Retro Foundations is full of great background builders with accompanying sentiments. I used one of each on the card below, the background stamped in grey ink on kraft card, and the sentiment divided into two parts, stamped in black and fuchsia.
I also used one of the other new sets for May, Flower Garden, to create the "center piece", a scattered arrangement of various flowers and leaves. I wanted it to be carefree and airy, therefore I resigned from masking.
Here I used the PPA135 sketch, along with the cheerful photo inspiration from Scrapbook Boutique:
