Watercool Wednesday Challenge #116 - Kath's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge

If you are a card maker who finds it, well, challenging to create masculine themed projects, you will find tons of inspiration at the Watercooler! Kath is the host of this week's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge.
I went to a stamp set that I really liked when I saw it. Had to have it. Got it - and haven't really used it much. I know every stamper probably has sets like that in their collection.

This one is called Pun Intended and is only available with Stampin' Rewards. It really is a clever and fun stamp set! See what I mean?
I seem to be in a "green" mood since hosting last week's challenge which had a Spring theme. I started with an Always Artichoke card base then used Always Artichoke and Mint Macaron to stamp the lines image from Playful Backgrounds on Very Vanilla cardstock. The circles are done with Archival Black.

The fun camera is from Pun Intended, as is the sentiment. I stamped the camera image in Archival Black onto Whisper White cardstock, coloured bits of it with Gold Wink of Stella, then fussy cut it.

I had a piece of Very Vanilla, with a square cut out of it, in my scrap pile and when I looked at it, I saw a frame - any of you who remember Polaroid cameras will know what I mean.

The piece of DSP from Serene Scenery is another tie-in to the camera theme. I love the Bokeh effect and it makes the camera look like it's floating.

  2. I wanted that stamp set too Gail, since I have several photography friends and I thought it would be a good one for my stash. Sadly I haven't used it much either. You've done a beautiful job with this card and I'm particularly impressed with your background stamping as I have that set too which hasn't seen any ink yet! LOL you're inspiring me to get it out. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The bokeh dsp really showcases the camera and makes it appear 3-dimensonal. Love the shades of green colour combination. Great card for a lucky recipient. :)
