Let’s hear it for the boys! This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin‘ is a theme challenge based on Masculine Cards. Although I have used the dinosaur stamp from Dinoroar (p59 IB&C) as my main image this card is not going to a young boy! It is a bit “tongue in cheek” for a friend that is turning the big 40!
I wanted to go the old worn look and the Well Worn paper (p129 IB&C) are perfect for this. Do you like the cogs? These were made from the pretty Flirtatious Speciality paper (p127 IB&C). I punched and cut them into cog shapes then using my sponge on the ink pad I changed their colour from Pumpkin Pie to Early Espresso. I liked how some of the Pumpkin Pie colour is slightly showing through.
There is also a sneak peek on this card, the Happy Birthday sentiment is from a new stamp set called Memorable Moments to be released in the new Annual Catalogue on 1 September.
