Welcome to another month long challenge at
Our challenge for this month is Boys to Men..
make it masculine..
OH MY I had so much fun making this card.. I knew I wanted to use this fun guy from Art Impressions.. I stamped him first and since he is bowling I needed to make a bowling alley look.. So thought and thought and this is what I came up with.. It's a single layered card except for the bowling pins..
I used a T- ruler and did the lines at the bottom which turned into the bowling lanes. The dark blue represents the alley sides and then the wood floor. I added a line up from that for the wall border. I then masked off below the red wall border and using my large Stampin Up circle stamp I did the wall decoration. I colored everything with copics. . To give the back wall some interest I did wavy lines. I colored the man with copics and stamped the sentiment on the wall with Hero arts black. I stamped the bowling pins and fussy cut them out and foam tape on the center pin. I put glossy accents on the bowling ball and pins. This card took a long time to create but I love it and pleased with the scene. I hope I inspired you to a create a masculine card. Head over to the Creative with Stamps site and see what the Design Team did. Remember to use a stamp on your card. Have fun
