So back to our 'One for the Boys' challenge, the DT have created some fabby projects to inspire you!

Anjie - To create my card I used the Roses A5 stamp set. You wouldn't think that a Roses stamp set would suit for a male card would you! For the background I stamped the large splat in a dark blue ink, and then the smaller splat with a lighter blue and a dark yellow. For the front stripe I used the 3 different clock faces and a set of clock hands in the same colours. I used the Phthalo Blue Shade - Pan Pastel to give a distressed look around the edges. I then added one of the sentiments to the front and some bakers twine.

Claire C I've made a canvas using Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and PanPastels in Raw Umber plus Shade, Burnt Sienna plus Shade creating lots of texture to give a wood effect and sealed with Maimeri Glossy Gel Medium. I've used Maimeri Acrylic Paints on the cogs.

Terry I was playing around with a heart wallhanger for the Boys, the background is worked on with light modelling paste, the roses stencil. The roses are colored with PanPastels that I mixed together. The wooden butterflies underneith are colored with Pans too. 


Lou: I too have used the Roses A5 stamp set. as adore all the elements of this sheet. I created my background using Diarylide Yellow Shade, Raw Umber, Hansa Yellow Tint and Rich Gold pan pastels. For my background, I have over stamped with the clock image using Mustard Seed distress ink. On the main image, I have stamped my images using black Adirondak ink pad. Hearts have been punched out from red card and layered. Also for a change, I have made a DL card!

250.3 Diarylide Yellow Shade - Pan Pastel  780.1 Raw Umber Extra Dark - Pan Pastel  220.8 Hansa Yellow Tint - Pan Pastel  Rich Gold - Metallic Pan Pastel
