Hi there! It's time for the January Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things! This month This month's challenge is to make Masculine cards! I hesitated when signing up for this challenge because masculine cards are a toughie for me, but I'm always up for a challenge, so I jumped in with both feet....sort of! LOL!
Head on over to Kim's blog for a link to each designer participating in this month's challenge!
I pulled out the set, At the Movies along with the coordinating At the Movies Die-namics, Mini Film Strip Die-namics and Stacking Stars Die-namics. I feel that stars are masculine. Don't ask me why, but I do! I searched through my vast amount of 6x6 paper pads and finally settled on Authentique's Free Bird series Poised & Warmth. I think these papers look masculine because of the diamond pattern (masculine to my eye) and I find them to be gender neutral colors.
I stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink, finishing the panel with some stars from the set in Crushed Curry ink. I cut a piece of corrugated cardboard from my stash with a star die (Spellbinders) and inked the edges with some Vintage Cream ink. I finished the card with some of the Stacking Stars and some chocolate buttons. Notice I did not tie the buttons, bows are not masculine :)
