New Design Team - The Male Room Challenge

I am delighted to be part of the Design Team at The Male Room Challenge.  It will be a challenge for me too to think of 'male' cards - I wonder why we find them so difficult.

Our theme this month is Tag.  I added my tag to my card.  I started off by creating my background with my brayer and a gel press. I used blues and purples for my card and used Arteza acrylic paints.  I used a Shawn Petite stencil of the feathers for the background and added some washi tape to the sides.

For the tag I used a Tim Holtz die cut to create the tag.  I used similar paints for the background.  The feathers are from an old set by Stampin Up called Feather Together.  I added some background stamps from one of Tracy Evans sets and added a real feather in the middle.  I added a brad to the top and some more of the washi tape.  The Happy Birthday was white embossed.

I'm adding this into the following challenges:

Crafty Friends - For a Man 
Creative Inspirations - Masculine 
Paper Funday - Masculine

Masculine cards are hard for me to create as well, you've done a great job on your card. Thanks for sharing with us at The Paper Funday Challenge and we look forward to seeing more of your lovely designs.
