Lili of the Valley Challenge #17




Hello Everyone!

This weeks Lili of the Valley sketch challenge was to make a card for the "male". I have been meaning to buy a stamp that is oriented for an older male, but somehow I haven't done so! Just when I think I'm going to take the plunge and buy a guy type stamp, a cute stamp catches my eye and there you have...I'm still without a guy stamp.

So while thinking about what to do and how to go about it, I thought about the designer paper I brought some weeks ago. The DP by Piggy Tales featured a slew of guitars on it and on the reverse side the guitars are larger. I decided to cut out one of the guitars and base my card around it. After I cut and trimmed the guitar, I matted it on red c/s and trimmed it again just leaving a bit the the red c/s as trimming. I then colored over the guitar with my Copic clear glitter pen and to give the guitar a shine, I applied Liquid Glass to it.



I used my Cricut Expression to cut the letters and stars and used silver brads and black ribbon to decorate my card.

I love your card. It's hard for me too to create "male" cards. I guess because I get distracted by all of the embellishments and bling! Your lettering is very nice too, that's what I need for my cricut, letters! Thanks for sharing this very inspiring card risa! xo, Teri
