A combo challenge
I am completely hooked on both Caardvarks and 2 Sketches 4 You challenges. Since both of them have a challenge this morning I decided to combine the sketch from Laura and the theme from Caardvarks. The theme for Caardvarks micro challenge (which means you only have one day to complete it and post) is "masculine birthday". Now that is a true challenge, why is it so hard to come up with cards for men? I asked my oldest son Ty who is 11 who he thought this card would be appropriate for without telling him of course what I was going for. Luckily he said a boy! I said good that is what I was going for, his reply "yeah Mom its cool, but do you have any skull stamps". Gee I forgot to add a skull and cross bones...have to keep that in mind next time LOL! Everything on this card is from Stampin' UP! except for the star brads, those are Memory Makers. The star I used the faux shaving cream technique on. Looks a little on the camo side I think, then I swiped a versa mark pad across the piece of River Rock card stock to give it a little texture.The colors are Basic Gray, Old Olive, River Rock & Whisper White. Stamp sets are "Fundamental Phrases", "Independence Day", "Circle of Friendship", "Baroque Motifs" and jumbo stampin' wheel "Lots of Dots". I have a stamping meeting tomorrow, so I may just make a bunch of these for swaps. What do you think??
Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow with the winner of Inspiration Challenge #4.
