Less Is More Challenge Week 7: Masculine Revisited

This weeks challenge over at Less Is More is the (somewhat dreaded) masculine card. I did make a submission earlier in the week and wasn't planning on submitting another. However, I recently ordered a little gift for my husband and it came in the mail today. I wanted to make a card that would double as a gift tag. Of course, just like earlier this week, I headed straight for my collection of Tim Holtz stamps. I also grabbed up my "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink as green is my husbands favorite color. Here is the final result...

The stars are from his Visual Artistry clear stamp set "City Central" and the lion is from the VA clear stamp set "Regal Flourish". I also used black Archival Ink.

I really like how it turned out and my husband loved his gift so I guess everybody wins!
As always


  1. Heraldry images are very on trend and your card is very masculine. Glad your Husband liked his present and card:-)

    Your Lion image reminds me of the stamp we used to get on our eggs here in the UK many many years ago...

  2. This is a very strong image and a truly masculine looking card!
    Glad it went down a storm!
    Thanks for another great submission.
