Just Us Girls Word Week

Ina has a great word for us this week at Just Us Girls - "Masculine".  I know a lot of people claim they have a difficult time creating masculine cards, so now is the time to jump in and accept this challenge.


We would like to welcome our Guest Designer for the month of March - Jen Mitchell.  Now pop on over to Just Us Girls Challenge Blog and see what Jen and the rest of the Design Team have created for this Masculine Challenge.


I needed another sympathy card for an older gentleman who had lost his son.  I pulled this blast from the past out, it's a very old SU set.  I stamped it in Memento Espresso Truffle on Core'dinations cardstock and cut the middle out making a frame.  Stamped the other ship in the same set, colored the sails with Distress Marker in Picket Fence and a damp paintbrush and colored the bottom with Distress Markers in Pumice Stone and Gathered Twigs.  Sponged the edges with more Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Black Soot.  Striped background is from Mel Stampz and added a strip of washi tape.

Now it's your turn to show us your Masculine creations at Just Us Girls.  Who knows, you could be our next Chic of the Week, which leads to the possibility of being our next Guest Designer.  Please limit your entries to 3.
