Allsorts challenge

Wow don't the weeks fly by, it's week 17 already at Allsorts and the theme this week has been set my my teamie Debs who is looking for "Something for the Boys". Now all us crafters always complain that cards for men are difficult, so we are really looking forward to seeing what your creative juices produce.

My DT card uses this cute little owl from Hero Arts A4942 stamped three times and the branch H4946 all stamped with versafine sepia and embossed with detail clear over a moon created by sponging through a circle cut into in a piece of copier paper. The leaves and swirls in the corner are from Inkadinkado 98396 and the leaf is from the same set, stamped onto shrink plastic with Brilliance inks. Border and corner are Martha Stewart embossed zigzag and DP's My Minds Eye.......just for a change - I know it's becoming repetitive, but they do have such yummy designs and the quality is superb ! Sentiment is Art Impression G3130 and I added tiny gems for the owls eyes.

  6. Hi Brenda love this card
    love the colours for a man and yes they are so difficult to find stamps and papers for.
    I have just looked back at your cards(havent felt much like doing anything just lately) and you have done some brill ones but I have to say I saw them in the flesh last weekend and they look amazing if only Mr blog could make them shine like they do in real life!!
