Masculine Monochromatic


Stamp Addicts have a new show on Create and Craft this Friday 7th January at 2pm featuring new and innovative stamps from JudiKins, so hope you can tune in or record the programme.

The above card is one I made using one of the stamp sheets I had to play with showing Archimedes and his tools. A fairly plain and simple card, but I thought the monotone somehow fitted the images and allows the wonderful clarity of the images to show through. All are stamped with Versafine black, the corners to each piece rounded and matted onto black cardstock. This card is for the following challenges

My Time to Craft - Up in the air (wings and feathers)
Paper Playtime - Faces (Archimedes)
Ladybug - Anything Goes

Thanks you so much Ladybug DT for selecting me as one of your Top 3 last week.

  13. I like this card very much. It is so hard to make cards for some men in particular but my husband, a retired industrial chemist, would really appreciate something like this. I will do my utmost to watch the programme on Friday - might get more ideas. Elizabeth x

  28. Hi Brenda. I hope you are getting back to normal after feeding the 5 thousand. Isn't it nice to get back to plain food. I made a big pan of soup today and it was delish!!
    Your card is just perfect for any man, I love it, although the images are simple there is a lot of interesting detail to look at.
    Happy New Year.
