It's time already for another masculine challenge, presented this week by Charlotte.
I still tend to automatically reach for darker colours when making a masculine-themed card. Do you do that?
That's what I started when I reached for the Woodgrain DSP and Early Espresso cardstock. But then I headed in another direction.
I had just received an order, and in it were the Basketweave embossing folder and the Just Add Colour Designer Series Paper.
The embossed piece is Crumb Cake, and I used the back side of it, which I thought looked a bit more manly - LOL. Since I did still want to use the Woodgrain DSP, I cut it smaller and glued it on top of the embossed piece.
The feather design is from the Just Add Colour DSP, which I coloured with Stampin' Blends - Crumb Cake, Bronze, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight.
For the sentiment, I went to Sheltering Tree. I love the handwritten look and think it is suitable for a masculine-themed card.
So, even though I used some dark and muted elements in this design, the feathers really lighten things up while keeping the whole design still suitable for a male recipient.
Now it's your turn - show us your best Masculine Anything Goes creation! Visit Watercoloer Wednesday for more inspiration for the talented Watercooler Artists.
