The Male Room is a new challenge that launched today and, as the name says, focuses on projects for Men/Boys. I know that lots of people aren't too keen on guy cards, but I really enjoy making them, so I had to play along with their inaugural challenge - it's an easy one too - as Anything Goes!!! I've also managed to play along with Muse this week - just love Lynn Mangan's inspiration card and have used the layout for my card. This week's Colour Throwdown challenge are bold and bright and I think perfect for a guy card. Finally, I'm submitting this to the Sweet Stamp Shop challenge to "Use What you Have". I've have a super stash of SSS stamps and I've had the chemistry set for a while (I'm a science nerd) and haven't inked it up before, so that's the one I'm using! I'm trying to build a stash of cards to send to Ben - I try to send one a week - and I think he'll like this theme!
I cut the Camera die twice - once in grey and one in white. I stamped the flask image directly onto the white panel, used the second impression and then coloured it with Promarkers. I stamped the chemical symbols onto another scrap of card and cut them out and adhered them over the flask. I stamped the bulb onto some more scrap, coloured with Promarkers and adhered it to the card with dimensional tape. I love the fun sentiment - Ben might think it means him :)) Here's a photo of my SSS stash - got lots of ideas for the new ones!
Well, I think that's all for today. I've off to get dinner ready. Kathryn is having a friend over for a sleepover tonight - she's so excited!!
