Hops and Barley

A new Hues to Use challenge was posted over on the Power Poppy blog yesterday and as soon as I saw the colors I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use, the Hops and Barley digital set. It's a stamp set I haven't used before but with Father's Day approaching I think it's good for some masculine cards and I love the warm hues of the challenge.

I created 2 cards, slightly changing the positioning of the stamp on each one, plus I used a different sentiment on each card. On the Hoppy Birthday card I used a lightly different green combo for the leaves than on the beer sentiment card. For the birthday card I also used my E40 copic to shade around the leaves and's a very subtle shading, I was too scared to do anything bolder LOL 

I brought in the maroon shade by coloring in portions of the "Hoppy" and "Beer" letters, plus I used some retired SU Bravo Burgundy for my card base.

Thanks for stopping by!
