TMR - Colour ....

.... Hi!  It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room.  This week it's not a theme that we have for you, we would like you to make your masculine style card using the colours:

Blue, Green and Brown

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy, Ocean Bound
Inks: Versafine - Vintage Sepia; Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso; Kaleidacolor - Cappuccino Delight
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Early Espresso; SU Markers - Wild Wasbi, Marina Mist; Clear Embossing Powder; Copics


The inspiration for this card came from Renee's card during the recent WMS Release Blog Hop.  I saw the way she'd coloured the circles on my favourite stamp and decided to CASE it.  I stamped the image onto white card and heat embossed with clear powder, and then used lots of different green and blue Copic markers to colour it in.  I used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#66, and of course, this card fits with our current Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge - one for the boys.  I cut a brown mat for the circle image and adhered it to the card base.  I finished the front with a simple sentiment in brown and drew the lines in by hand (using a ruler of course!).  On the inside I cut a mat of brown and stamped a second generation image of the circles, adding some faux stitched detail in the corners.  I left the centre blank for me to write a message - this one is for our boy, Ben!

For more inspiration using the colours of blue, green and brown - check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team.  I went for more muted shades of blues and greens, but you can go as bright as you like!  Looking forward to seeing your creations!
