I had been playing with the marbling technique with shaving cream again (and took Colleen's advice and did it by the kitchen sink this time...much easier to clean up!!), so used a piece of that as my starting point on the side of the card. (re-inker colors used: Canyon Clay, Classic Kraft, & Spring Rain) I have always thought the Sun from the What the Doodle: Sun stamp set looked like a Sunflower, so I die cut one from Canyon Clay and Summer Sunrise cardstock to use as my floral for this card. I added a few die cut leaves from the Floral Sketches stamp set inked in Spring Rain and edged with Classic Kraft. Before gluing anything down I used one of the ferns from Meadow Greens inked with Classic Kraft and spritzed with water on my card base. The berries die cut is stamped with America ink and is from the Spruce & Sprigs set, and my sentiment is from Keep it Simple: Birthday. A simple blue button tied with some twine finished off my masculine card.
Although I was quite intimidated at first with this challenge, I'm glad I played along as it was really fun to see what I could do to transform some of my more "girlie" stamps! Betsy's video is great and has lots of wonderful tips on how to do this too! So take the plunge and play along...you can find Betsy's fabulous card, video, and all the info you need to play along right HERE.
