Masculine Cat Tails

What a day! I didn't have a spare moment all day long, and I honestly can't see what I've accomplished. Don't you hate those days????

I did take time this morning to play along with this week's Featured Stamper challenge at SCS. This week's featured stamper is Petal Pusher, and you can find her awesome gallery HERE .

The card I chose to CASE is called Stems for a Man's Man . I rarely pass up an opportunity to make a masculine card. Since I have two sons and 5 grandsons, I'm ALWAYS in need of a guy card!

I changed the stamps, paper and embellishments, but kept the general layout of the card.

The main image is Paper Inspirations Cat Tails . Is that a great stamp for masculine cards, or what? I colored on the rubber with Tombow markers, spritzed with water using my JudiKins Fine Mister then stamped on white marl paper. Using my Ink Sweeper I lightly sponged the edges of the panel with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

The green background panel was also stamped with Versafine Sepia Ink using JudiKins Crackle Background .

I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Messages using Versafine Sepia Ink. I punched it out with SU! Designer Labels, and adhered it using foam tape for dimension.

The oriental coins are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by tonight. I plan to be back tomorrow.

Until then....

I spotted this stamp in your store recently and thought hmmm, that would make a beautiful card! We must be on the same wave length LOL! Now I can see that it DOES make an awesome card. I love the soft sponging effect and colors. The metal accents really add the pefect masculine touch. Nice job, great card!! TFS
