Manly Monday Blue Shirt

Manly Monday card today with a birthday card. I started with a white card base and adhered red cardstock to it. The blue patterned paper (Provo Craft) was cut down smaller then the base and inked with blue distress ink before adhering to the front. 

I die cut the pennants from the Cricut and layered the blue on top of the red. I took some grey ribbon and wrapped it around as shown just for something different before adhering it to the front. I stamped the shirt (Unity Stamp Co) onto Strathmore watercolor paper with Hero Arts black ink and again onto a scrap of grey patterned paper (Unknown). I colored inside the shirt with blue Peerless watercolors and the outside edges a red. 

While that was drying, I fussy cut the shirt from the grey paper on the inside which would leave a hole for the blue shirt to shine through. I did take a black marker and touch up the edges on the inside of the grey paper. I adhered all of those together and found this sentiment that was already stamped in my pile. 

Here's how I did the paper piecing.

Thanks for looking.
