Nontraditional Card Challenge !!!!


Hi everyone! It's me, Karen. I'm so excited to be hosting this weeks Mod Squad Challenge. I had to really think of a good challenge for ya'll, because there is a awesome prize this week. I was really inspired at the release party and blog hop over at Stamp Tv. There was a card that was stamped with masculine images but was so feminine, and that was my inspiration. Judy Woodland created a card using the new Out West 2 stamp set by Theresa Momber. Here is the link to that card. 
http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/desert-sunset?context=user  .When you look at the set there are cactus and cowboys, barbed wire and such. Masculine. But Judy created a scene that was feminine . Here is the link to Judy's card

So this week the Challenge is to use a image that you would usually use for a masculine card, but make it a feminine card.
This is the one I created!

I used Gina K Designs pure luxury card stock in Kraft,  Innocent Pink & White. The image is from Gina K Designs,  Country Roads - illustrated by Theresa Momber
I used Gina K Designs ink - Navy & Innocent Pink ribbon. Momentos Black ink and copics to color. Added some pink bling from my stash. 


For the second card I had fun using the set  Follow Your Dreams by Theresa Momber.  I used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Warm Cocoa, Black Onyx, & White (Layering weight) card stock. Layered the focal image on some DP from my stash. I also used Gina K Designs Inks in Innocent Pink, Ocean Mist, Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango, Warm Cocoa, & Black.  Added some Innocent Pink ribbon, and enamel dots from the stash along with a little glitter pen for some sparkle. Copics to color the boat and water.

 Hope you all get a chance to play.

* Remember Masculine Image made into a Feminine card.*
