Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 107 - Penny's Masculine Challenge

It's time for another Masculine Challenge, this time hosted by Penny.
I recently read a thread on a demo-only Facebook page, where the discussion was about using colours on masculine themed cards instead of using the darker, earth-toned  colours.

Well, my card uses Crumbcake, primarily. Not because I think I have to use it because I was doing a masculine card. Rather, I used it because it is a colour I love to use for all kinds of projects.

But, I did also use Very Vanilla cardstock, Copper Embossing Powder and Rich Razzleberry ink.

First, on the Crumbcake card base, I sponged the edges with Crumbcake ink, then used a little texture stamp from the High Tide stamp set, inked with Rich Razzleberry, and stamped all along the edges. Kind of looks like red wine, I thought after I had done it!

The first layer, I stamped with the grapes, corks and jugs from Tuscan Vineyard, the brick image from Ghoulish Grunge, and one of the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge - all in Crumbcake ink.

The image panel is the vintage card from Guy Greetings, done in Copper Embossing Powder. I used Rich Razzleberry ink to stamp the word 'enjoy' from the So In Love stamp set. Then I stamped over it with the same texture stamp from High Tide using Rich Razzleberry ink, stamped off once.

I think this card could accompany a gift of a nice bottle of wine for that wine-loving man in your life!

  1. What man would not love this card? Beautifully done! You have so many elements in this card, and they all work beautifully. The crumb cake color is perfect and I love what you have done in the background and the Rich Razzleberry ink works perfectly. Yes, this would go great with a robust Red wine!

  2. Hi Gail. I'm loving your mix of stamp sets and inks in your beautiful vintage masculine card. Lovely mix and very masculine. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I can't believe I don't have crumb cake ink yet - love your card
