CCT Masculine

Time for our next challenge at Cute Card Thursday, and this week we would like to see something masculine - ummm, well, I kinda got carried away with the flowers on my card, but who's to say men cant do flowers, in pink and blue, with a bit of netting and fish?

Our sponsor for the challenge is Bunny Zoe's Crafts, please stop by the blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the DT have made for inspiration.

Thankfully I got my card made before the bugs struck me down.  The image is an old Papermania stamp set, coloured with my Copics - here's the card:

An artistically wonky shot! Well, I kept the card plainish, with a selection of papers from my bit box that I just distressed around the edges.  The piece behind the image I've embossed with the Marrakesh folder and inked to highlight, can't remember the colour I used but it is a Versamagic chalk ink .. .. ..

The little bit of mesh I thought looked like netting, and pulled out some strands to colour with an aqua ink and tie in a knot.  The fish I stamped up from the Marianne Design Eline's Beach House, coloured with chalk inks and fussy cut out.  I used the same inks to colour the mulberry paper flowers punched out with the CR1323 flower punch die then spritzed and shaped with a ball tool and when dried I've layered up some of the bigger flowers.

The Sweet Stampin' challenge blog theme is for a non white base, mine is aqua so I can enter!  The Creative Card Crew are also looking for masculine creations this week so I can enter with them too.

Thanks again for stopping by - I've still got a few cards I can share with you but I've not made anything this week, Mr Mojo is all coughed out.  I really do have to start working on Mum's birthday card though - she will be 90 years old this October so I had better make it special!
