Wishing You A Wonderful

Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Today, I would like to share a masculine card that can be used for any occasion. It is grungy, distressed and I REALLY like how it turned out!
I used Swagger by Fancy Pants. Now I will be the first to admit, I am not a huge fan of FP. I find it hard to work with their papers for some reason. However, I can see myself using every single page of this luscious paper! It screams MAN...mmmmhmmmm!
For some texture, I used stencils by Crate Paper and Prima. Once that was dry (I used my heat tool to speed up the process), I was going to add some white acrylic paint to some of the pattern paper. Side note, do not do this OVER your project while being distracted....yep you guessed it; paint everywhere. BUT it worked out because it added more interest and grunge to the project! Sometimes accidents are good! The arrows were fussy cut from the collection.
I used a sentiment from Close to My Heart. It goes with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. However, I hand cut the sentiment. I used an eyelet to make the occasion. The wonkiness of the eyelet added more distressing to the project. As said, some accidents are good! That's it!!

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Remember to like us on FaceBook! Kenya~
