Dream Valley Challenge - Just For men



Look who's sponsoring Dream Valley Challenges this fortnight! It's Bugaboo Digi Stamps! A lucky winner will get $21 to spend in their online store! So get crafting your card, layout, altered item - whatever strikes your fancy as long as it follows the theme Just For Men

If anyone wants to 'try before you buy' there's always a 'Friday Freebie' available on the Bugaboo website, too.



Here's what I did. This groovy dude has been hanging about on my laptop for quite a while - isn't he cute (in a totally Goth way, man!)?

I used the current sketch at Sketch and Stash and used papers from a Bo Bunny pad, called 'Blast Off' that I got last year. The stars were cut from a scrap of holographic gold card using an X-Cut die. I also used my faithful old Martha Stewart zig-zag punch.

The ribbon and gems are from stash I'm trying very hard to use up my stash and not buy anything new - I haven't any room for anything new!!!!

I can't list the Spectrum Noirs I used, because the list has gone AWOL! The guitar has been covered with Glossy Accents.

So that's it. Go over to Dream Valley and have a look at the great cards the talented DT has made, many using some very funny Bugaboo images and sentiments!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Oh, I am on the "use up my stash" boat...which makes it hard when I get my monthly kit from Scraptastic Club!! I can't turn down one of their kits for some reason, and it makes it really hard to use what I already have!! I love this image, you did a great job with the coloring. The papers are perfect :)

Great card, Mags, and great image!! Isn't that zig zag punch a lifesaver for male cards when the usual doily and lacy punches just won't quite work?!lol
Good luck with the not buying more stash thing... I'm trying too as I am drowning in craft stuff... not really working, though!! :S
hugs, Rachel x
