This week is a wonderful challenge at "Sweet Stampin"

This week for ITS AMANS WORLD the idea is to creat a crafty project for a Man.
Something that you could give to or represents a man.
Now I always hear that it is so super hard to create a crafty item for a Man.
I know that most of the crafty items that you see around either look like they are for a female or are made for a female, but I can tell yo that even pink can be a Mans color. YUP! Head on over to the "Sweet Stampin" Challenge Blog and check out the incredible projects that our DT have created to inspire you! They are awesome and they use some colors like pink and flowers too!

Above is my card for "ITS A MANS WORLD". I decided that i was going to go back to Stamping. Back when I began stamping, about 17-18 years ago now, stamping was about stamping. It was based on the image and either creating a scene like above, or just making your image rock! We embossed and colored. There was not all of the embellies that we use today and white card stock was the base. We then added color and maybe some papers and then you got a little creative! Crafters, we have completely evolved...........................Trust Me!

Anyways, I decided to go back to scene stamping. The entire pic is made of stamps. I did the background with a cosmetic sponge and by putting ink on the spunge I dabbed the ink around to create the ground, sand and sky. Otherwise it's just stamps paper and a small frilly in the top corner. I like the jungle theme for men. It seems to work well.

Hop on over to "Sweet Stampin"! get inspired by the DT! Gorgeous projects as always! Then get creative.

Now don't forget! This is not a sketch so you can be crafty and create whatever you would like for the Man theme. Surprise us! 3D object? Scrap Page? Somthing Else? Let's see it, your crafty project!
