Make it Monday..on Saturday!

It's not Monday but I am on time (yeah!) for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.  This week is a technique challenge using ink blending. (video tutorial at this link)  Now I must admit I rarely try challenges but I needed a card for my prayer partner on a retreat weekend who just happens to be male and a pastor.  Talk about intimidating!
I used PTI"s Everyday Blessings for this CAS card.  The sentiment is perfect for my needs.
The center panel is popped up on dimensionals.  I used the Tim Holtz blending tool and black ink to do the subtle blending.  I think it makes the cross looks like it's backlit. 



If you change the sentiment, this would make a nice, elegant, simple sympathy card for a male or female, I think.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  You can always click on the photos to make them bigger if you'd like.



Pin It!

I think masculine cards are so hard to make, Charlene, but your's is exceptional!!! So simple yet elegant in design...the sponging around the cross really adds dimension!! Your prayer partner is going to love this!!
