TMR - Theme .....

... Hello! I'm here this morning to tell you about our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#46. You probably won't be too surprised to learn that we have a theme challenge and that the theme is


I've been busy making all my Halloween cards ready to post out to friends and family. This is a fun one:

Be Afraid - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - Aliens; Impression Obsession - Bump in the Night; Stampin' Up! - Playful Backgrounds; Ranger - Dina Wakley Halloween 16
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; SU - Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SUDP - Halloween Night; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear

I adore this gruesome little alien and printed him on white card, coloured him with Copics and then fussy cut him out. I edged the image with a black marker to hide the white card. I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch -CTS#193 for the layout. I used a strip of design paper for the vertical panel. I masked off the DP and stamped the bubbles in green and orange for added texture. I adhered the alien directly to the card and used my MISTI to position and stamp the greeting. I decided to add some sparkle to his eyeball with a clear Wink of Stella brush. On the inside I cut mat layer of design paper and on the white panel added some more bubbles, a greeting and a Halloween bat!

I used the colours from The Paper Players - PP#316, they seemed so perfect for a Halloween card. And I'm submitting this to Left of Centre - LOC#151 who want to see Halloween - check!

Do visit our blog to see more inspiration projects from the rest of the team. Don't forget that you can make any type of paper craft project for The Male Room, just remember it has to follow the theme and be masculine in style. That's all for now!
