July's challenge theme at A Blog Named Hero is Masculine. This is a tough challenge for me since I am not very good at making masculine card. Too many flowery stamps!! LOL
I went thru my Hero Arts stash and found a few stamps that should be appropriate (in my opinion) for a masculine design, such as the Number Pattern, Carte Postal and Untitled Post Mark.
To create this card, I first stamped Number Pattern with clear embossing ink on white CS panel. Then use the blending tool and applied Broken China and Crushed Olive. The postage stamp from the Carte Postal is stamped with black on white CS and fussy cut, and adhered at center of Number Pattern panel. Next I stamped the post mark, then layer the number panel onto black panel and then onto white card base. I framed the postage stamp image with a stitched square scallop frame glue on top an colored acetate that has gold color trim. Here's a close up.
