Triple Challenge

Hello from 'down under' to all my guests - I do love having you call by!!

Just a quick post today and a simple card for a brother who likes clean lines and no fuss on cards!!

As DB loves his fishing, I thought that this image from Hastings Rubber Stamps would be suitable... it is of the highest mountain in New Zealand, Mt Cook, some native flora, and the trout!

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with chalks and the blender pen.  The photo does not do it justice as IRL the colours are stronger and brighter.

I mounted the image panel onto dark brown fabric, which was lightly frayed around the edges,  adding the top ribbons and brads before and the bottom one after placing the main panel.  

The fabric had already been mounted on the bright mid-green back ground.

Over all a simple card and I hope one that will be appreciated.

This card 'fits' three challenges:


I don't usually mange to incorporate so many challenges, so I was pleased with this effort.

Thank you for calling by, and for any comments left, they are always appreciated.
