A Little Bit of This and That - Artistic Outpost April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team April Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost stamp sets.  This month, the Designers are sharing projects they created using stamp found in the "This and That" stamp category on the Artistic Outpost website.

I'm always in need of masculine cards, so today I'm sharing a card created with the Artistic Outpost Paperboy, Hat's Off, Ephemera Backgrounds and Chalkboard Wisdom stamp sets.


To create the collage background, I stamped the image from Hats Off, masked with Eclipse Tape then stamped the script from the Paperboy stamp set.  I added the journal text from Ephemera Backgrounds to the pattern paper panel then die cut using a fishtail die.  Using the omitting technique I stamped the sentiment from one of the Chalkboard Wisdom sentiments.
