Masculine cards are usually the most difficult for me and I needed one for my brother\’s birthday. I love dragonflys and thought it would be fun to emboss a series across the page in Nuvo Hot Chocolate Embossing powder.
Last summer I won first place in AAA 4th Birthday CAS Challenge and the prize was a generous gift certificate to Visible Image\’s shop. I did not have any of their stamps and I picked out 4 sets including this one called Live in the Moment.
I colored the wings with Copic markers (Y17, YG01, YG03). I then made an accent strip using Altenew Espresso Crisp Dye Ink and mounted it on a Kraft card.
For more masculine card inspiration pop over to Watercooler Wednesday\’s Masculine Anything Goes Challenge
I am entering this card in:
The Male Room Anything Goes Challenge I think the images and colors are very masculine. And for the optional twist, I did not use any designer paper. I did hand ink the espresso accent strip.
Cardz for Guys Challenge Not sure if this is a wild animal, but it is a creature found in the wild.
This is my first time entering this challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
