Quixotic Challenges - One for the Boys!

Welcome to this weeks Quixotic Challenge and this week it was my turn to chose the challenge and I have chosen 'One for the Boys!'. You can choose to make a card /project/layout that is suitable for the men or boys!

I know a lot of you dread this...having to put away the frill and the sparkle...but I enjoy the challenge of making something more masculine for a change! I hope you will too and find the time to join us!

I have chosen to colour one of the Greeting Farm Ian stamps. He is coloured with prisma pencils with copics for the skin tones.

Now for the rest of this card I got very painty and inky.The background is a piece of sticky back canvas painted with blue acrylic paint. I then stamped the wall background onto it once it had dried. The chipboard bracket and letters I then painted red, so they could co-ordinate with each other. I found a couple of screw brads and added the 'dude' sentiment with my tape writer.

Voila!

I love the bright colours on this one...thanks to my new Claudine Hellmuth acrylic paints! They are just fabulous to work with.

I am kicking myself I didn't get myself more when they were on offer on QVC yesterday. Did anyone else watch Tim?? I watched it in the evening when everything of his had run out so he was ending up using Kanban papers!! Poor guy!

Anyway I digress! I hope you can join in with the challenge this week and this is your last chance to enter to be in with a chance of winning this months prize of an Amy Young stamp and an assortment of pearls, pins and charms!

Thanks for stopping by!
