The Male Room #57 - Black White + One

A really fun theme at The Male Room for the next fortnight and one of my favourite colour combinations too!

So I went with turquoise as my additional colour and made a a modern and funky card ready for my oldest grandson's first teenage birthday coming up soon.

I stamped the halftone starburst in black first and then simply overstamped it in turquoise after moving it slightly to the right. The WOW was stamped and hand cut and raised on pads to create a little shadow effect.

And he is awesome of course at the moment, but we're all waiting to see if he turns into an overnight teenage nightmare like Harry Enfield's Kevin. Fun times!

Stamps: Uniko, Explosion Additions
Inks: SU, tempting turquoise; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables

I'm wondering which colour you'll be adding into the black and white mix - with so many possibilities The Male Room gallery is sure to look quite spectacular once you all get linking up.

Huge thanks for dropping by my blog today, your time is really appreciated.  And keep crafting!
