Hello there and Happy SUPER Saturday to you! I am excited (and a bit nervous) to share a new creation for this week's Our Creative Corner challenge. This week, the lovely Tui Nathan is out hostess and boy, has she come up with a challenge for us. GAH! This week, we are focusing on masculine cards with NON-Masculine colors.
Here are the details, straight from our sweet hostess:
"Masculine cards are the type of cards I have the most difficulty with, therefore my challenge is to create a masculine card or project. However, if you would like a real challenge and to step up the heat a bit try creating a masculine card .... using .... non-traditional masculine colours - plus, any neutrals of your choice."
Tip: Think about using textures, plaid, checks, stripes, argyle, stamped images and sentiments also brads, grommetts, twine, string, burlap, then add the colour - think yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, reds, pastels, and finally add in your neutral. Be creative and have fun!
So, in an effort to jump-start my creative mojo, I turned to another challenge for the card design. Tui is on the DT for Freshly Made Sketches as well, and she designed the fun sketch this week. So this is technically a "two-fer" challenge...well, actually, it is a "Tui-fer"!
I created this card for my favorite "rock-star" (aka: my sweet hubby!). He is headed to "H-Town" this week for a concert, with a good friend. For all of you non-Texans...that is Houston. They are going to be livin'-large, "VIP-style"...hanging with the band and all that cool-stuff. I wanted to make a card to tuck in his bag for the trip.
I used a little argyle from the Big Top Birthday DSP, along with a color combo of Daffodil Delight and Taken with Teal. Yup, I realized after typing those names that they SO do not sound really masculine. But, pairing them up with the Grunge Rock stamp set has to count for some extra "guy" points, right?
Hope you have a chance to play along at Our Creative Corner this week! Please stop by to see what the rest of the Design Team have whipped up this week for this "guy" challenge. We hope you will have some fun and play along!
