Make It Masculine

Hello there,

It's time for another new challenge over at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Make It Masculine.'  We quite often struggle to make cards for the men in our lives, so here's a chance to add to your card stash.


The card that I've made has all been done using free stamps that came with a Creative Stamping magazine last year.  The Elephants were designed by Crafty Individuals and I find them so useful.
I brushed my card with a layer of yellow ink and then masked off the sun before adding more colour to my sky. Next, I used a mountain stencil to create my mountains before stamping the grass and trees.  The elephants were stamped, coloured and then fussy cut out before adding them to my scene.
That's my inspiration, so I do hope that you'll join us in this month's challenge.

We would really love it if you could join us with a piece of your artwork featuring this month's theme but please remember that Stamping Sensations is a 'STAMPING' challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Wishing you all a happy and colourful day xx

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

You have a created a beautiful scene Sandra, it has such a peaceful feel to it and Elephants are such majestic and graceful animals that they all add to the tranquility of the Serengeti.
