"It's a Man Thing"

"It's A Man Thing"
is the new theme at Vintage Stamping Challenges 
this month.

There are so many possibilities with this one...you could make a valentine's
card to your man, go sporty, cars, wild west or anything with a man in it would be fine.



When I saw this stamp set here I knew just what I was going to do.
LOTS OF MEN!
I think I used nearly every man in the set...but it was heaps of fun.

The colours I have kept with shaded bluey/greys...
everything I tried just didn't seem to look right. But I do like how the colours have come out.
Lots of masking, a little stenciling, some cracked UTEE, a little gold and of course
some hearts (because I love men!)
I think sometimes you just need to keep things simple so that the stamps can shine.

I hope you take the time to pop over to Vintage Stamping Challenges
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.
 Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 gift voucher to the winner,
he offers an occassional spot prize
and there is always a top 3!

Enjoy

I also like how this one turned out Dot, the colours compliment the images perfectly and using them on the backing as well as the focal panel draws it all together perfectly.

Fab card Dot, love the muted colours and of course you can't have too many men can you? Hope you're having a good weekend
