Hi, I have a few more cards and challenges to share today.
You really should go to The Male Room and check out their challenges. Some of us struggle to make cards for the gents and this site helps us to create better guy cards! The design team is so inspirational but you also need to look at all the cards of the ladies who participate in the challenges. Loads of creativity and thinking outside the box over at http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/
The current challenge is to make an autumn card...now my first thought was to make a football card- fall, the US, football- perfect! But then I thought- I am doing these challenges to push myself creatively so I went a different route. Since I send my cards to OWH, I wanted to stick with a useful sentiment. I think the crimped paper and the CTMH triangle embellishments add to a more masculine feel. I placed the Elizabeth Crafts peel offs on to Copic Xpress It paper and colored them with Copics. The sentiment was stamped on vellum.
Words to Scrap By also has a seasonal challenge this month so I went more girly this time with a MFT Pure Innocence stamp.
And finally we have this month's Our Daily Bread Designs challenge at Operation Write Home...create our own background. I used distress inks and a stencil and then cut the panel. I adhered it to black paper then used Delicata Gold ink thru another stencil.
Thanks for visiting,
