Men, Men, Men, Men, Manly Men....

The fabulous Kim  has chosen the theme at Stampotique this week, and she has gone for a masculine feel.
I'm so excited to host the challenge this week as it's one I'm always struggling with.  In a home where the males outweigh the females, you wouldn't think it would take much to create a masculine card, but it's something I have a hard time doing every time I sit down to make one.  I challenge you to show me your best masculine cards this week-are they ones that come naturally to you or do you draw a blank when you need to create one as well?
Can't wait to see all the possibilities you come up with this week!
It's true isn't it, whatever is in your stash it's never the right stuff to make a 'man card' they're just difficult arn't they - men in general I mean :-)
Here's my card.
This technique was shown to me by the wonderful Jo (JOFY) and I loved it so much I had to make another straight away while I still remembered how to do it!
Everything has been painted with Fresco acrylics.

This is the tag that hiding in the slot. It's attached with some very manly string lol.
I've used the following stamps.

Hope you like it, and that you will join in this week and make something for the man in your life.

Right I'm off to pack now, 2 weeks in the sunshine for me, so I'll see you all when I get back :-) 

Have fun and get stamping! xx
