That’s right! We’ve been challenged to “Make It Manly“!
And so for once … I went to “my” manly source = DH.
Previously … … and also 99.9% of the time … …
I simply choose my own ‘manly/masculine’ way to approach a challenge/card/project, then proceed on my own instincts.
Surely, many stampers/papercrafters follow the same initial approach … … right?
Not this time, stampers!
We have a “manly opinion” for this one! My hubby was presented with 4 dsp paper pad choices for the backgrouding of my card. His choices were from 4 differing paperpads, with various color schemes that most paper-crafters would definitely offer as “masculine” choices. His unanimous selections were from the “Basic Grey – Basics Kraft Paper Pad” … with his comment of “Why is everything in brown?!” …. the comment was uttered “after” he realized how much he admired that particular paper pad. So who am I to argue with my limited “test”?
The sentiment is from my frequent favorite, “ Posy Greeting Centers F-1949” ( as I write … this set is 20% off! ). Stamped with Archival Jet Black ink onto white c/s, it was airbrushed with Copic E41, then diecut & layered before adhering to the twill. The sentiment edges were dotted with Viva Decor Pearl Pens – Gold for a minimal bit of embellishment.
