Waltzingmouse House forum in The Play Room.
There will also be another thread in The Play Room for chat and to play along in our monthly blog waltz game. This time you will be looking for (and counting up) watermarks that look like lanterns in the blog posts by the Design Team and Claire. A winner of a stamp set of choice will be drawn from all the correct answers! So good luck to all. :)
There's a couple things I try with guy cards.
1. No pinks. Period -- unless its for my husband.... then all bets are off.
2. No glitter. See exception above.
3. No scallops. See exception above.
4. No flowers. See exception above.
My poor poor husband... he's gotten cards with all of the above including one that broke all 4 of those rules.
Anyways, back to the card. For this one, I did try to avoid all my NO NOs for masculine cards.
So for this one I tried to get my sk8er girl hat on...
I picked a sk8ter boy image and sang "Sk8ter Boi" while creating a card that had inspirations from guitars and skaters. I wanted to create that guitar look with the threading and by popping the patterned paper over my skater boy image. I decided that while glitter is NOT ok, that shiny silver twine was a-okay.
For those of you who are confused by my pop culture reference, I leave you with this:
He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a super star,
slamin' on his guitar -
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?
For more inspiration on masculine cards, I highly recommend looking at the previous post for other tips I have for creating masculine cards. And also check out the Paper Crafts Round 2 Gallery Idol competition (and maybe even vote for yours truly before noon MDT today ;-) Ok, shamless promotion ending now.
