Today I'm sharing a card I made for two challenges, CASology and Time Out, who both have the same theme - masculine. One very close to my heart then with all the males in my family.
Time to break out the blues then!
I used homemade stencils to ink up the three background circles and then stamped over with the script and smaller circles. I'm loving these Happy Little Stamper sets and the circles in particular - just keep reaching for them all the time.
Ok so having made a CAS card I really liked I thought I'd see if I could add the mixed media twist to it that Time Out mentioned. So I did a bit of embossing, added two die cut arrows and some enamel dots - hoping that makes it qualify.
And I'm thinking I like this second version even more. Seems more rugged and masculine, but still CAS. What do you think?
