Cupcake Ch 39 & Secret Crafter Ch 31

Morning ladies, this week the lovely Denise set the theme for Cupcake Challenge 39 which is to make a card for a man or a boy. I'm also going to enter this card for Secret Crafter Challenge 31 which is to use brads or eyelets.

For my DT card I have used a Magnolia Edwin Stamp and he is coloured with distress inks. The paper is from basic grey and the embossed panel has been done with my swiss dots folder.

I always find it difficult to embellish male cards, but for a bit of extra detail I have added some photo corners and metallic brads.

I have also, once again, tried out using black for my shading......I'm getting braver!!!!

Card/Paper: White and ornage card, Basic Grey - Boxer
Stamp: Magnolia
Colouring: Distress inks - walnut stain, vintage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick, weathered wood, black soot, faded jeans, peeled paint and broken china.
Embellishments: Brads
Tools: Cuttlebug, swiss dots folder, corner rounder punch, water brush.

The other girls have done an amazing job as usual, so go and check out their creations.

Thanks for looking x
