This week's challenge on the SweetStamps blog is Masculine Birthday and this is my addition to the challenge.
I used a Globecraft and Piccolo Weathervane accent covered with Vintage Black enamels as my focal point for the card.
The background sky created with Ranger Distress Inks, masking and sponging. The cloud template can be found under tutorials in the right sidebar of this blog.
The barn was cut from My Mind's Eye wood-grain paper with a silver shimmer cardstock cut to create the tin roof which is glued on with Aleene's tacky glue. The wood-grain is colored on the edge with marker and popped up with foam tape so the weathervane bookboard accent slips under the panel.
Perfect Paper Crafting tools: Perfect Layers Mini 1/16" and 1/4" rulers were used for the mats. The Perfect Ruler worked great for cutting the thin shimmer cardstock for the tin roof and all were cut on the Perfect Cutting Mat using a craft knife.
I couldn't find the correct color of designer paper for my cross panel so I sponged on Festive Berries to change the white to red...a perfect country plaid!
