I've got another card today for you featuring my new BB: Diagonals and Diagonal Additions stamp sets from the January 2014 Papertrey Ink release. They'll be available for purchase here real soon. 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com, in fact. I like to think I pack a lot of versatility in my products. This one is no exception. I hope you agree.
I've seen a lot of comments about how well both these stamp sets work for masculine cards. Very true! They scream "guy" because of their graphic nature. Today's card will show you just that.
Here we've got a birthday card for a guy. I used both the BB: Diagonals and Diagonal Additions on the top panel. This is a whole new look from what you've seen previously. I first stamped the large chevron strip from BB: Diagonals in Aqua Mist ink on Spring Rain cardstock repeatedly to create a large continuously pattern piece of workable paper. Next, I took the singular lined element from Diagonal Additions and stamped it half on and half off the open areas in the original chevron design in Blueberry Sky ink. You get this three toned look as a result. Cool beans.
