{ 3, 2, 1 Challenge }

Okay this card was made for today's SCS Limited Supply Challenge: 3,2,1 Birthday Cards; 3 stamps (not stamp sets), 2 colors of cardstock and ink (plus neutrals, no patterned paper), 1 embellishment. It is also for yesterday's Way's To Use It SCS Challenge. Yeah, I've already done three for that challenge, but it's a good one! Yesterday's challenge is to use stamps that haven't touched ink before. My husband's birthday is next month, so I figured it would be the perfect time to bring out this set. After all he is the reason I bought it!

The gray background was done with my Cuttlebug and embossing folder, I then used by brayer with Going Gray ink to give it some color and more texture. All the white layers and the base layer are all sponged with gray ink. All the coloring was done with watercolor wonder crayons and a blender pen. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the golf bag didn't stick out enough, so I painted on crystal effects to make it pop. Last but not least I added the eyelets. I would have liked to add another embellishment, but the challenge was to only use one. Can wait to give it to my husband! I'm sure he'll like it.

The second part of today's challenge was to make the same card with different stamps and colors, but the same layout and a feminine card. So I'm off to finish off the challenge!
