Hambo Stamps sent me the digi 'Three Ties' as a reward for playing in their challenge at the Hambo Hoedown last week. They send out a freebie every week!
Its almost too good to be true.
Their challenge this week was to use one of the of ties and the sketch they provided.
The background paper is plain cardstock with a technique called Acrylic Emboss applied to it. I got that technique from the Technique Junkies Newsletter.
It basically involves acrylic paint, embossing and distress inks. I like the rugged look to this piece and thought it would be excellent for a man's card.
I used Distress inks on all of the edges to distress them. I stamped a wood grain stamp to the circle the sentiment is backed with to give it some 'texture'.
So, at this point I will enter it in a bunch of challenges:
