ABC Y for Y Chromosome

Our challenge at ABC this time is Y for Y Chromosome, or in other words a male themed challenge.

Jim B'day 1

We are sponsored by Stamp Fairy with a $10 certificate for their store.

I kept my design relatively simple. I added some bazill card to an 8x8 card blank and layered over  some Papermania Wellington paper. All the layers are from the same paper pack. The motifs across the centre are from a K&Co card ribbon pack. The image is from Kanban from their Jasper stamp sheet and I coloured him in Blue Grey and Grey Flex and Promarkers. Three buttons from my stash are the only other embellishment. I do struggle with male themed cards as I never know what to use to fill ‘gaps’ in my design, but these buttons seemed ideal and matched quite well with the buttons on Jasper’s coat.

I am entering this into the following:-

Charisma Cardz – #38 Something For The Guys

CI Paints – Anything Goes

Here Come The Boys – #37 Monochrome

I Love Promarkers – #136 A Male Theme

OSAAT – #133 Butterflies or Buttons

Simply Create – Linky Party #4

Sweet N Sassy – SNSDC73 Hip To Be Square

The Outlawz Copic/Promarker Challenge – Anything Goes
