Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #107 - Penny's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge
It's time for another masculine challenge and this time it's hosted by Penny Hanuszak. I love making masculine cards and projects. There are a lot of men in my extended family and it's a good thing to have some cards on hand that are particularly designed for them.
I love an "anything goes" challenge, don't you? It means that the sky (or my imagination) is the limit, in this case as long as it's masculine. This time I decided I would finally get around to using my Nailed It bundle. How awesome is it that we have a stamp set with some terrific images of tools, nails, bolts, etc PLUS a matching set of dies to cut them out? The moment I saw the set, I knew I would have to buy it. After all, with a brother-in-law who is a master carpenter and a bunch of would-be handymen in my family, this bundle is going to get a lot of use.
I decided to keep the colours neutral except for a splash of red (unless you consider that silver is not a neutral?) I even managed to get a strip of Silver Foil which I embossed using the new Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder. Otherwise my base is Smoky Slate with a layer of Basic Black and then a layer of Basic Grey. The tool box is primarily Real Red except for the touches of Silver Foil and the screwdriver has a Crumb Cake handle.
You can see there is some sponging on the handle of the screwdriver and also on the tool box. The splatters on the Basic Grey were stamped with an image from the One Wild Ride set.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the other Watercooler Artists at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. And then I invite you to link up your own masterpiece for us to enjoy.
