Variations Week: Shanna's View

Hey Sweet Pea Lovers!!! It is VARIATIONS WEEK!!! 

Now this is a first for me again so I am still crazy excited. For those who don't know Variations Week is where each designer works with the same stamp and we get to share our take on it. We all have different views and styles so we definitely get to show you what we are made of.

This week we are working with Karen Middleton's image Red, White, and Blue.

This was hard for me as I don't do masculine well. Yes I don't. I think I have done maybe 3 or 4 masculine cards in the last 2+ years. 

Well I was lucky and had a paper pad by Fancy pants that was unused and sitting there collecting dust just waiting for this moment.  

Here you can see a close up of my coloring skills. A little harder on this image. Again I think I am just masculine challenged!


Now don't forget to stop by every day to see a different take on this image. Shall be an extra fun week!

  2. Shanna, for someone who doesn't do male cards this is fantastic. I love that dark starry backing, colouring is wonderful and the hessian is a perfect manly addition. I am one sad girl now that the Variations Week is coming to an end. I've always loved seeing the so many different creations with the same image. Amazing. Best wishes, Kym xxx
