TMR - Theme .....

... Hi! I know there's a saying that time flies as you get older, well this month has zipped by! It's the last day of the month and time for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#78. We have a really fun theme for the next two weeks. We want to see masculine projects and the theme is INSPIRED BY TELEVISION. So what about television inspires you? I like to watch the news on TV and there are so many stations to view. I've made a 'news flash' card:

Stamps: Paper Smooches - Boob Tubes; My Favourite Things - Typewriter Text BG
Inks: Gina K - Black Onyx, Moonlit Fog; Versamark
Dies: Die-namics - Stitched Circle STAX #6
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Grey; SU DP - Moonlight; Copics; Glossy Accents; Nuvo Shimmer Brush; White Embossing Powder

I've used the sketch from The Paper Players - PP#378 for the layout of this card. I found some graphic design paper in my stash, stamped the typewriter font background in pale grey on top and attached it to the card. I stamped the TV on white card, cut it out with a die, coloured it with Copic markers and added glossy accents to the 'TV screen'. I stamped the sentiment on grey card, attached it to the card and then layered the die cut TV on top using dimensional tape. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of dark grey card and added a fun, punny sentiment! I think this is going to be for Jonathan 😊

I was on a bit of a roll with this theme. Another of my favourite genre on TV are hospital dramas - I just love Grey's Anatomy, Chicago Med and The Good Doctor. As so many people have colds or flu at the moment, I thought a get well card would be fun:

Stamps: Paper Smooches - Healthy Vibes
Inks: Gina K - Black Onyx
Accessories: Copic Markers; Nuvo Shimmer Brush; SU Card - Bermuda Bay

This is a little card, measuring 3½" x 5" and is really cute! I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:

I stamped the jolly germs on the card, coloured them with Copics and added some sparkle with a clear Nuvo aqua shimmer brush - you can just about see the shimmer in the photo above! I finished with a simple sentiment. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of dark aqua card and on the white panel stamped a greeting and another little germ peeking in at the corner. I used the colours from last week's Just Us Girls - JUGS#424.
