JAI176 - Just Add Blokes & CCMC 2nd Entry



Hi Everyone,

I thought this weeks Just Add Ink challenge - "Just Add Blokes" was a great opportunity to get in and make a Male card .  For those of you outside Australia, "Blokes" is another name for Men.

Today I'm using Mosaic Madness bundle set teamed with a greeting from Loving Thoughts stamp set.  I don't understand why, but the simplest cards seem to take me the longest.  I agonise over them, and yet I can make something much more involved quicker, when I have a clear vision in mind.

I've taken the colours for this card from the colour challenge this week for Create with Connie and Mary so this card is doing double duty for both challenges.

Here we are


The cardstock is Berrmuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White and Smoky Slate per the colour challenge.  Here is a closer look at the Mosaics.  The Bermunda bay one is raised on dimentionals.


This picture below gives you a closer look at the greeting.


Thanks so much for stopping by to view today's male card.   Mmm wonder which bloke I will give it to.

  2. Wonderful colours and shapes for a man card - the stamping, embossing and punching all in the same shape is very striking. Chantell.JAI
