Simon Says: Masculine


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Masculine

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This is Alison's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure having you along with us 
 😍
I made a card with coordinating envelope for Dad using a Visible Image Ahead Of Our Time Clear Stamp Set and Strobes Stencil 


 I used a MISTI tool to make sure that I got a good covering of ink and embossed the image with Versafine Onyx Pigment Ink and  Clear Embossing Powder. I then masked the image before stencilling the background with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink.


Dad is not a fussy guy so I kept this fairly CAS and I have to say I do love how this has turned out. The image and stencil are fabulous aren't they! I didn't mean it to look like the sun was shining out of the back of his head though LOL.

I finished with some Washi Tape, Black Twine a Sprocket Gear  and distressed and stitched around the edges. I use Label Letters for the sentiment.


and I finished the inside 




Thanks for looking!

What a minimalistic beauty! Another proof that the masculine card don't need to be dark. Love the sunny backgrounds and the mix of yellow, grey and black you limited to. Great job! Hugs, Marzena.

Fantastic stamping - and such a cool retro look - like those 1960s film and TV title sequences a la James Bond or The Avengers. Love it!

This is a fabulous card Lols! I love the black and yellow together and how you continue the design on the inside of the card.

cheiron said...

Perfect masculine card Lols. The contrast between the black and yellow is so eye catching!

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

FANTASTIC card, Lols! I really love the fresh bold color palette. As always, the inside is as gorgeous as the outside and I really like the sun ray effect. I also like how you phrased it "Happy Dads Day," which was clever and unique. It's always a joy to see your work!
