Paper Players Masculine Map

Hello again,

Twice in one day! This is becoming a bit of a habit, and with not much planned for the bank holiday weekend I can see more to come in the next few days. This time I'm playing along with a sketch set by The Paper Players, the sketch is a simple one but after trying to stay very simple (this one is on my desk and needs much, much more work!) I went with a bit more detail, I love layers so I had to put a few in this card.


Here is the sketch I have used for the card


I have swapped the three circular elements for a design split into three portions, I have done this before with an image but have seen it done a few times, I thought it was quite effective with the motorcycle image, I used a piece of paper from the Newsprint DSP which features a map, and the green band and repeated sentiment have come from the Plane and Simple set.

So glad that I managed to complete a card that I liked for this challenge, it's no fun when you finish something only to look at it and not really like it. I'm sure many of you will know what I mean, we are our own worst critic sometimes.

Hope you have fun plans for the weekend,  xx

You're right, it is very effective! :) I tried it once with an image of a sports car but I tried to be too clever and cut it up randomly and it didn't work too well! Doh! Nice card :)

I look forward to all your posts over the weekend :)
