TMR - Technique ....

.... Hi! I'm almost back to my regular posts! I've still got a bit of sorting out to do in my craft room, but I can at least get to all my inks, paper and stamps. I'm here this morning with my card for the new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#33. For the next couple of weeks we want to see your masculine style paper craft projects using the
technique. I've put a video at the end of this post if you're not quite sure what how to do it. I've made a clean, crisp card for a teenager or young man:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Boy; My Favourite Things - Document It Rock On
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Kaleidacolour - Denim
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Basic Black

I've used the word prompt "ROCK" from the current Inkspirational Challenge - INK#106 as my inspiration. I used my all time favourite stamp set - Free Spirit Boy - which has wonderful tribal style graffiti images along with lots of other little stamps. I cut two white panels and lightly adhered them together while I stamped the images. I like the effect you get with the Kaleidacolour pads. I layered the stamped panels on black card and then adhered them all to the front of the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel I stamped a sentiment and more graffiti images.

For more inspiration do visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have made. You've got plenty of time to join in, deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 26th April (7.00pm EDT for those of us in the States).

That's all for today - I'm off to do some more unpacking. When we moved over to the States (four years ago) I didn't unpack every single box that came over, but this time I'm opening every box. I've found toys and books that the children have out grown, and even some of their old clothes. I've also found lots of UK electrical equipment that is now in storage in the basement. Going through my craft room stash I also found a few duplicates!! What am I going to do with them? Check back soon and find out. See you soon.

Fabulous card! I love the subtle colours, very masculine.

Been a DT for Fab'n'Funky for a few months, sorry I thought I had mentioned it. Not easy with a full-time job with long hours but it's wonderful fun and all my fellow DT ladies are wonderful

Hope to see you soon

I really like all your funky teenager cards and this one is no exception. Works well with triple stamping.
