Tone on Tone

Today at Curtain Call they called for something simple. The photo inspiration showed tone on tone with white, wood decking, and rounded rocks . I decided to make my card (more male oriented) tone on tone in browns. I used the wood plank cover stamp by MFT for the decking, the Hero Arts -Woodgrain circle stamp and MFT Stitched Circle stax die to create the largest circle. For the second circle, I embossed it using a wood grain embossing folder and a circle punch, and the final circle included a sentiment from SSS. I tried three different main backgrounds, either changing ink or background colour. As I don’t have my father anymore, I made a guy card vs a Father’s Day card. Which one do you like best?

I also entered Cardz4Guys – Father’s Day or that Special Male Card

UPDATE:  My card was selected as one of the Show Stoppers at Curtain Call
