The Male Room #09

So today I'm sharing my second card as a member of the DT at The Male Room. Thrilled to be typing that!

This fortnight the theme is birds and as always whatever you create has to be suitable for the men in your life. So I went over to my favourite digi stamp shop and found a gorgeous owl all suited up for his graduation. Perfect!

I decided to keep the main colours in shades of grey with just a pop of a suitably dignified sort of colour. If I was making this card for a particular person I think I would have used their university's colours, but as this was just to go into my own stash I chose blackberry bliss.

I tied a piece of twine round the top of the card stack as I thought it echoed the tassle on the mortarboard.

Stamps: Digi Stamp Boutique, Graduation Winston; Clearly Besotted, Basic Banners
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Paper: SU, Moonlight paper stack
Colours: Promarkers, cool grey 1-5, tea green, vanilla; Flexmarker, linen; SU, stampin'write blackberry bliss
Embellishments: twine from my stash

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today. Looking forward to visiting your blogs to leave some love about your interpretation of this theme.

And keep crafting!
