.... the theme for this weeks' challenge over at Less is More is for a masculine card. At the time of writing this post, there are already an amazing 167 entries on the blog!!! Chrissie and Mandi certainly found a gap in the challenge market :) I've only managed to get around some of the entries so far, but I shall certainly try to get to them all before the end of the week.
I've had to give this one a bit (a lot) of thought! I couldn't decide what to do for the card - cute, funny, risque - so I thought some more. And then, this evening, just as I was about to go to bed I remembered that I bought super Kanban set from QVC a couple of years ago that was entirely designed for men. Lots of wonderful photos of all types of activities. So I had a rummage - and this is the card I came up with.
Obviously, I kept it clean and simple :) I found this wonderful image of a boy skater doing an aeriel stunt and for the background I turned to my "go to guy set" from Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy, and used this clean, simple graphic; I stamped it in red to go with the boy's red cap. Then I couldn't decide on a greeting, I did consider it for a birthday, but decided it would be a congratulations card. I think I'm going to send it to my son, Ben, he took part in a 2 mile fun run last weekend - and he deserves some congratulations.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit - Boy, Free Spirit - Sentiments
Image: Kanban (Male set from QVC)
Inks: Brilliance - Rocket Red
You saw from my post yesterday evening, that I didn't manage to play much yesterday as I was busy reading. I'll try to get to play a bit tomorrow, I've almost finished my book now - about 300 pages to go - so I might get there later. Take care.
Awesome card! That stamped image is so perfect with the picture - makes me think 80's and "Totally Rad!"
This card is perfect for the younger adult male section of the population... probably the most difficult. Well done Deborah!
"Less is More"
Fantastic card :o)
Awesome "dude" card
Great card Deborah, the red graphic stamp is just perfect.
Well done Deborah, this makes a great teenage card. Love the image and the background. x
Fab boy's card Deborah.
Great card Deborah. The stripes remind me of magpie (itv's answer to blue peter in the 80s)and they did lots of action stuff. I think I bought the same kanban kit too but goodness knows where i put it!!!
