I think most of us agree that masculine cards can be, well, challenging. I know I have to take a step back when creating masculine cards, but with these great images from Sparkle N Sprinkle, it's so easy. My first card, while incorporating LOTS of glitter, is definitely on the right track. This image is part of one of several Stained Glass sets aptly named Sailboat. While the colors are bright and sunny, it still evokes that masculine touch, don't you think? If you've never done the stained glass look with glitter, take a closer look at this card. Simply stamping on acetate with Staz-On ink, then "coloring" in the back side with Brushable Glue and different glitters will give you this stunning effect. Sponging on yellow and orange inks to the card front keep the sunny theme going. I tied it up in a neat little package with a wave die and scallop oval die.
And the next card is quite opposite in its color and feel. But what Dad, hubby, boyfriend, etc. wouldn't be pleased with the sentiment alone on this next card! Using images from several new music sets here, simple embossing with black detail EP completes this look. Red mirror card stock gives it the bling.
And now for the fun part! If you leave a comment on my blog, I will be giving away one of the glitters in the Sailboat card above. This is one of my favorite glitters (not true -- I love them all!) called Autumn Medley. Once you've left your comment then you'll definitely want to hop on over to Barb's blog to see what great surprises she has in store for you. Good luck to all and thanks for dropping by!
Ciao for now.
