This is the first time I've been able to participate in these challenges. Normally, these run during the week, when I don't have time to sit and think about how to make a design work with a specific color palette.
Since we were working with more masculine colors, I wanted to craft a card to give to my Dad for Father's Day. I learned some things in the process of making this. I don't have many stamps that are appropriate for a card for the male gender. I don't like working with a blue/green/yellow color scheme. And most importantly, never loan your stamp pads out! I let my friend borrow these colors because 'I dont' ever work with these colors'. Thank goodness I have all the markers!
Given these 'challenges', I am pleased with the results. The numerals are a perfect choice for this card. My Father was a mathemeatics instructor, so this will have extra special meaning for him.
