WWC239 – Helen’s Masculine “Anything Goes” Challenge

P1080351 (2)

Thanks so much to Addicted to Stamping and More for selecting my card for an Honourable Mention!

Hello and welcome

This week over at Watercooler Wednesday, I am hosting the Masculine “Anything Goes” Challenge.

It offers lots of scope for participating! I hope you can find the time to join in.

My card is a card / gift card holder.

P1080352 (2)

To begin, I stamped the MFT Birth-Yay image onto cardstock with black ink.

It was then coloured with copics.

After masking the image, as well as both sides to leave a strip for ink blending.

I then cut down the LHS of the image down as far as the hippo, taking care to fussy cut around the tortoise and monkey.

A strip of black card was added under the front of the largest section of the panel front.

This was then added to a black panel, only adhering around the outside and across the edge of the smaller section and horizontally from the hippo. This way the card stays in place and doesn’t fall out.

The sentiment is also from the set, but I stamped the first part parallel to the image and then the “YOU” across the top of the ink blending.

Lastly this was added to the card front.

I think this image is soo cute!!!

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
