I've got two cards to share for today's TE Blast from the Past blog hop using two of my favourite Whimsical Wishes sets and inspiration from Sankari's sketch. Our challenge this month was to make our cards masculine. When I'm aiming for more masculine designs, I either bring out the grunge or add distress ink and minimal embellishments. Having said that, Steven Tyler redefines all of those notions, doesn't he? Bring on the psychedelic prints, layers, ribbon, feathers, sheer fabric...really anything goes!
I've gone with more traditional 'masculine' with this one though and took only the guitar (from You're My Hero) as inspiration from Tyler.
I shellacked the guitar and inked up the splatter in the background with two colours of ink. I've used shabby shutters distress and SU not quite navy inks together with SU cajun craze cardstock and basic grey wander paper. For my second card, I used the tree, the swinging tire and two sentiments from In the Park:
I've coloured the tree with copics and prismacolors and paired frayed burlap distress ink with SU soft suede cardstock and basic grey marjolaine paper.
Thanks for stopping by along the way!
