These are ALL Masculine Cards in keeping with my Masculine Week challenge to myself.
These are also cards that I made by following (somewhat loosely) other blogger's sketch challenges.
The first one was "inspired" by Jen's sketch #4 challenge. I started out with her layout but then I got off the sketch a bit with some extra matting.
I purposely stamped the images somewhat scattered for a "different" kind of look - hence the upside down robot!
This next card was based on Julee's Bingo Sketch Round #3.
Again I used the Back Nine stamp set and stamped the golf bag in black ink on Very Vanilla. I coloured it with my aquapainter and Creamy Caramel ink. I then inked up my Canvas background stamp and used my Background Omit technique to add some interest to the main image. I also stamped the Bravo Burgundy strip with Canvas but it's difficult to see in the photo.
I stamped the golfers image in the lower left and upper right of the card in Creamy Caramel ink for a subtle background effect.
I used Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla card stock.
I still have to make a card for my dad since he's NOT a golfer and the toybox one is a bit juvenile for a 70 year old!
Hopefully I'll come up with something tomorrow!
