This time at The Stamp Man we have been tasked with the challenge of making something for a man. I have cheated a bit this time. I haven't been feeling too well presently, nothing serious just a bit run down and the menopause!!! By the time I get home from work I just kind of run out of steam. After several months of this I have now relented and gone onto HRT, so fingers crossed I will be back to normal soon.
So for this challenge I used a card I have made before, but it's one that I have made several times because it's quick and easy and who doesn't like elephants.
Basically I blend distress inks for the background. Then I use a paper mask to create the line of hills in the distance. Add the setting sun through a circle mask. Then I stamp the baby elephant. Mask him and stamp his mother so that she appears behind him. Add the tree and birds and a suitable sentiment and your done.
All the stamps used are Tim Holtz made by Stampers Anonymous. I absolutely adore these elephants and use them often. And of course I had to add my signature birds.
There are some great samples from the other DT members so be sure to pop over for a look. And if you want to enter this challenge then all you have to do is make a card for a man!! And there is a £10 voucher up for grabs.
My mantra for men's cards is "Keep it Simple" Most men won't care whether you have spent 10mins or 2 hours on a card!! I am sure there are a few exceptions!!
