Good morning fellow crafters and welcome.
As it's Tuesday it must be time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz where we aim to show that making cards for the men in your life isn't as difficult as you think!
This week the choice of theme was mine and I chose a simple one -
MAKE YOUR MARK
OK, your task should you choose to take it, is to create a masculine project that is mainly made by your marks, so no pre-coloured images this week I'm afraid. So stamp, colour with any medium you like, get the thread out but YOU are making the marks!
Here is my inspiration for you.
My inspiration for this card was a couple of challenges, always a good starting point for me.
Over at ATCAS and The Male Room the theme is Birds and AYLI is land or sea, so I thought of my Woodware stamp Sailing By. I love the little sea gull on the post!
As this is quite a large stamp I had to mask off the rest of image to stamp the section I wanted onto the base card. I coloured the image with Copics then wanted to set the seagull up on pads but also frame the image, so I masked of the rest of the stamp and inked up the bird then stamped it on an other square piece of card. I extended the post with a bit of freehand drawing then fussy cut the bird and post but left the bottom edge attatched to the card. I then cut a window with a square die ensuring that the post was on the other side of the die before I cut it.
I could then work out where I wanted the top panel and cut it to size, coloured the bird and post and popped the top panel up on pads after stamping the greeting.
OK, that's about it, pop over and check out the rest of the DT's and GD's inspiration.
Don't forget if you fancy a GD spot for a month just tag GD on the end of your entry.
I would like to join in at -

As you like it Challenge - Favourite Land or Sea
I never really thought about it before, but since we moved to the countryside it is good to go to the coast, walk on the beach with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face and the waves crashing on the beach. I love watching my Grandson playing on the beach also. It was always a great game to be the first one to spot the sea when we went away when I was a kid!
Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.
