TMR - Technique ....

... Good evening! It's been a really busy week here at Chez Frings! I've started to sort through our stuff to try and reduce what we take to the new house - it's taking much longer than I expected. We have accumulated so much stuff! Hey ho! I decided that I'd spend some time in my craft room today and I finally made my card for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#30. I must apologise to my teamies for being so late! This week we have a technique challenge - we want you to MAKE IT MOVE. Your masculine themed project must have moving part(s). Here's my take:

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Bon Voyage; Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz - Schoolhouse
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Brocade Blue
Dies: Lawn Fawn - Bon Voyage; Spellbinders - Circles Sm (S4-116) #5 and #6
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Island Indigo; Teresa Collins DP - Far & Away; Copics

I got the theme from the photo inspiration graphic at The Challenge - TC#62 - I used the map on the back wall as the inspiration. The colours are from Colour Q - cQc#331 - the shades of blue work really well for a masculine card.

I took advantage of the videos on our blog and decided to make a spinner card. I cut a mat layer of island indigo card. I cut two panels of map design paper, one was adhered to the card and I cut out a circle (as per the video instructions) from the other piece. I stamped the plane on white card, coloured it with Copics and cut it out with the matching die. I stamped the sentiment on the paper before attaching the panel with dimensional tape. I used a penny to make the spinner part of my card. Here are a couple of photos showing how the plane moves around the circle:

On the inside I cut a mat layer of island indigo and on the white panel I stamped a globe which I coloured with copics. This card is going into my stash.
