Has anyone ever said that to you before?!? Well, now I have! I hope everyone's New Year has started out great! I have to go to work in a bit but thought I'd try to get up a blog post before then. I got some creative time yesterday and played with my new favorite SU set, By the Tide.
Truthfully, I am not a big lobster person. I don't care for it as food, and let's face it, there are a lot of other cuter sea creatures out there. So I wanted to challenge myself to use it. I knew I wanted to use my retired SU nautical paper and my Tim Holtz compass rose embossing folder. So right off the bat, that's a masculine card, which I love to do! I messed around with the lobster image for a while and finally decided to do some tone-on-tone embossing. I used versamark and clear EP on Cherry Cobbler. I also tried embossing with Cherry Cobbler on Calypso Coral. It looked good, but not masculine, so I went with the first one. Layer is Night of Navy. Sketch is from Reverse Confetti SFYTT. I kept it very basic--it's a little plain, but that's ok for a masculine card. I left the inside blank for now so I can use it as needed.
Did you make any New Year's resolutions? I didn't, as I never keep them! I do plan to try to lose some weight--who doesn't, right? Hope you have a wonderful day!
