.... 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.
