tiddly inks challenge #51 manly men

Hey everyone! Finding time to craft during memorial weekend is tough. But I did it!!

This challenge was hard for me. It's hard to make a masculine looking card. I love flowers & butterflies & sparkly stuff. All things that I wouldn't want to put on this type of card. But here is what I came up with


Hmm,,,the photo looks washed out. Sorry about that. I have no idea why that happened.

I used Take a Stand & colored her with my Copics. I added a little bling on her belt & hairclip with some Stickles. I added sentiments on the signs by using my photo program. I placed her on some cardboard that I painted with some Tim Holtz inks. The arrow is from Echo Park digi elements & I added Glossy Accents to it.

Once you open it



Several of guys are there to greet you, Carpenter Joe,  GeekaTude with Kiki (a FREEBIE), and Geeky Glen. I put them on metal sheets. I used Claudine Hellmuth's Multi Medium and transferred the images onto the sheets. Then I added a sentiment that I popped up with popdots. Behind these guys are a couple of scalloped circle cut from nesties.

Next you lift this part up



Inside you find Annie Cheers colored with Copics. The paper is part of a paper bag with Washi tape added to it.  These days I am interested in the fun fold cards. Can you tell?

My husband is a sci-fi fan who loves his gadgets and talking science. And he has done a great job at building things around the house. There are still things that need to be done but I am not complaining. And of course my girls have him wrapped around their little pinkies. He just melts for them. It's so funny.

Have a great weekend!
