This week there are two challenges that are both looking for masculine cards, and both have to be clean and simple. First up is Less is More - #159 Masculine and then CAS on Sunday Challenge #27 - Masculine
Now when I think of masculine cards, I think about what my husband would like. Cards for men tend to have very blokey themes - football, cars, motorbikes, beer, fishing, rock music, gadgets ...... none of the things that interest my husband. He likes the countryside, the coast, good food and wine and his vegetable garden. So I decided a landscape was far more appropriate.
I made a background with chalks, stamped the V of flying geese over it, then made the hills and water by tearing Core-dinations cardstock and framing it with a die cut frame. Unfortunately the goose stamp wasn't cleanly cut and the edge of it made a mark that I couldn't hide
So I had to start again, and this time I made a circular frame which I think works better.
