Are you ready for another fun challenge at A.R.T. (A Random Thursday) Challenge Blog.
Today our challenge is one that a lot of crafters struggle with . . .
I must admit I enjoy making masculine cards but I know a lot of my friends struggle with this style.
Today I really took the EASY WAY OUT and used a stamp set designed for the MEN in our lives.
I also love working with plaid paper as the base for a masculine card and since I had both of these design papers in my SCRAP box ... what better place to start! The stamp set I have used is from JustRite and after stamping and fussy cutting, I colored in the stripes, rope & scroll with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
Once again I've succeeded in keeping my New Years Resolution to finish the inside of my cards. I think the reason I have so much trouble with this is because I don't know what sentiment I want to put on the inside unless I actually have a person in mind to send it to!
In this case, JustRite made it easy for me as this sentiment is part of the set.
Here are a few other challenges I'd like to enter:
Lady Anne's #10 - Anything Goes (must stamp)
Nutcrafters #47 - One for the Boys
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today and I truly hope you'll come share your MASCULINE BIRTHDAY creations with us at A.R.T.
Have a wonderful, creative day and as always . . .
