Dt’s Saturday Challenge – “Masculine; No Flowers”

The Challenge…

This week’s Saturday Challenge is hosted by Design Team member, Lola Cordova.

This weeks challenge is to create a Masculine Card with NO flowers . With Father’s Day approaching, we would like to see a creation for that special guy in your life. This is not limited to Father’s Day cards only. Feel free to make a Love, Birthday, Thinking of You, etc. card/creation.

Challenge Rules are HERE. Be sure to check them out and link back to Designed2Delight.com/blog.
One lucky person will win a free image from the Designed2Delight Store. Winner is announced the Sunday after the challenge closes.
**Any image can be used to be eligible for this prize.

I printed my image, and using cotton balls, I used 4 differed colors of Ranger Ink to color the entire image, going in circles and adding the brighter colors to just the fish. I did a little fussy cutting around the fish frame, added black CS behind my cut out image and fussy cut around the black to make a layer. ~Lola
