Rock On!

Hello Readers,

For today I am writing on behalf of The Male Room. There is another challenge to be had but before I reveal the theme for these next two weeks here is my card for today, enjoy!

'Rock on' seems like the perfect sentiment for a tween boy and his birthday.
I think I am going to save this one for a special someone who may not be named because he might be reading this.

Challenge #43
(TMR#43)
______________________________________

This collage type card has a lime, green, and red base. A stencil was laid over base and sponged purple. A patinaed clock and gears were distressed and then added to the design.
But what I love the most are those sneakers from Deep Red called All Star Sneakers

Left/Top: The 'o' is replaced with a lustery star. The circle is the 'o' of the sentiment. Right/Bottom: It is hard to see in the picture but the card base is coated with gloss sealer. It adds texture and complexity to this collage card. You can however see the lustre shine of the gears which were distressed using StazOn black ink. The star was left untouched, plain and simple.

This is actually the second card I made for this challenge. Why? Well since my husband is well.... male, I asked him if the other card was well suited for his kind. Well his answer was a definitive 'no!'. Okay, well back to the drawing board for me!! I was sifting through my stamps and saw these sneakers and knew what I was going to do.. The next morning I tentatively showed him this card. And what do you think I got? An approving nod- YES!

Well that should do it for me! I do invite you to join our challenge at The Male Room these coming weeks. I am looking forward to seeing what you create. Also, thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I do appreciate every visit and if you aren't already a follower, I invite to join me in my adventures at TheGrandStampede. So until next time, take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna

A great Tween card, suitably grown up and masculine.

Gorgeous texture and lots to look at on your fabulous card. I chuckled at asking your DH his opinion...I have done that in the past and maybe wished I hadn't!!! xxx
