Guest Designer for The Male Room Challenge #133



Hello there.  I’m so excited to be guest designing at The Male Room (TMR) challenge today for their challenge #133 - Make Me Laugh.  


Quite needed during this uncertain time, right!?  I don’t have any humour-specific stamps, but the cute critters from Your Next Stamp Photo Booth and Photo Booth Thumbs Up always put a smile on my face.  So I used them to make my nephew’s birthday card.  His birthday was two days ago.


Along the bottom edge of an X-Press It cardstock panel, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and masked to create the row of critters.  Coloured them in with Copics then stamped the sentiment from My Favourite Things Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings 2 with Archival Black ink.


Next, created the background by ink blending Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch distress inks through the Birthday Balloon Duo stencil from Studio Katia.  Finished with some Blueprint Sketch splatters.


I want to thank Jane and TMR challenge team for having me guest design.  Head on over to the challenge post HERE for more inspirations and join in the fun.  Thank you for dropping by.  Stay well.  Stay home.  Craft on.
