Manly Monday

Welcome to Manly Monday where the guys cards are in the spotlight. You won't find flowers in this post.  Be sure to stop by these ladies blogs and leave them some love. Tell them you saw their card on Manly Monday:) Then scroll down to the bottom for my card too.

Jan R from Huh. So this is a blog (Love that blog name)

There are three male cards on this one post

And THIS one from Lucy too

Wow! Weren't those some awesome masculine cards? I don't know if you noticed a small theme but I have been crazy wild for THIS stamp set that I bought at Oriental Trading Co. The price is $2.19 for a full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of clear stamps that includes words, gears and well, robots. Remember last week's card-HERE-I used the same stamp set and got a totally different look. 

I stamped the robot onto Strathmore watercolor paper with Hero Arts black ink. I used distress markers from Ranger to color in the image and their Glossy Accents on the gauges. The die cut the image is on is by Spellbinders. The background patterned paper is by We R Memory Keepers. I dry embossed a strip of the Strathmore cardstock and inked it lightly with Ranger Distress ink Pumice Stone. The embossing folder is by Darice. The rest of my supplies; black cardstock is by Recollections, circle punch by Stampin Up/EK Success, sentiment stamp by Stamp N Plus and craft ink by Stampin Up.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Challenges: Die cuts/punches Anything with a H (Hero Arts ink) Male birthday with sentiment
