TMR - Technique ....

.... Morning! We've had the most spring-like weather for the past week or so - we've had blue skies and sunshine, but somehow the temperature still feels like winter!! And then yesterday the temperatures went up, but the rain came too! Anyhow, enough of that, it's time for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#82. We want to see you use watercolours on your masculine projects. I had lots of fun and got really inky!! Here's my card:

Happy Anniversary - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Visible Image - Fibonacci, Son Definition, Father Definition; MFT - Because You; Lawn Fawn - Happy, Happy, Happy
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Gina K - Powder Blue, Jelly Bean Green, Wild Lilac
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Brusho Crystals - Lime Green, Cobalt Blue, Violet, Leaf Green; Clear Embossing Powder; Shimmer Spritz - Frost; Tim Holtz Watercolour Card; Copics

I cut a panel of watercolour card to fit my card, sprinkled on some Brusho crystals and spritzed with water. I love the way these crystals bloom into colour and move with the water. I dried the panel carefully and then stamped this wonderful Fibonacci image in Versafine and heat embossed it with clear powder. I added a touch of sparkle to the whole panel by spritzing on frost shimmer spritz. I attached the panel to a black mat layer and then added it to the front of the card. I stamped a selection of words from several different sets, embossed them with clear powder and cut them down to get the words I wanted. I attached the words to the front of the panel. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel stamped the Fibonacci image again, using several shades to echo the watercolour panel. I finished by stamping a greeting. This card is for my wonderful husband on our anniversary next month - it'll be 17 years!!!

I'm submitting this card to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#20 where it's Anything Goes.

Before I go, I'd like to say goodbye and best wishes for the future to Cathy who, sadly, is leaving the DT. And, at the same time, I'd like to welcome Lynn (aka Linby) to the team - so glad to have you join us. Don't forget to visit The Male Room and see lots more inspiration projects from the rest of the Design Team. You've got plenty of time to join in the fun - deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 10th April, that's 7.00pm EDT in the States.

That's all from me for now - see you soon.
