WMSFC - For the boys ....

.... Hello again!  I'm back with our new challenge for Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  This time we'd like to see you make "Something for the Boys"!  Both Tara and I really enjoy making masculine style cards and Claire has some fab stamps just perfect for the guys in our lives.  Here's my take:

You are missed - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Free Spirit Boy, Free Spirit Sentiments
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Denim, Vineyard
Accessories: Stampin' Up! Card - Night of Navy, Naturals Ivory; SU Candy Dots

It will come as no surprise that I've used my "go-to" guy set - Free Spirit Boy.  I absolutely love this big circles stamp.  I used navy card to make the base and cut a couple of panels of the naturals card.  On the smaller panel I stamped the circles.  I inked it up using a couple of Kaleidacolor pad, picking out the colours that I wanted.  I cut the stamped panel into three, adhered it to the other panel and added the sentiment at the top.  I then attached it all to the card base and finished with the horizontal strip with a couple of candy dots.  The inside has a panel of naturals card and a subtle impression of the circles stamp.

I used a couple of challenges to help me bring the card together - the layout is based on this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#124 and the colours are from Colour Throwdown - CTD#280 which are just great.

You have plenty of time to join in with our challenge - the deadline is Thursday 6th March at 5.00pm GMT (that's noon EDT).  You must use at least one WMS stamp, digi or paper on your card.  Don't forget Tara also has some inspiration for you - do drop by to see.  That's all for now.  Bye!
