Male - Love U card for The Artistic Stamper

You all created some great "Words" entries for last months challenge and thanks for playing along :)
So..... how do you feel about this one then?
Yes, love 'em or hate 'em (and I am soooo lucky to have found that special someone I love and who loves me in return) that's the June theme over at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team ;)

I made a card for the theme this month.

I firstly stamped Franswar in Archival black (making sure I did not ink the hat he wears ;)) onto a square piece of card smaller than the base card.

I then masked him and stamped the new background stamp "marbled 2" in Distress Ink mustard seed on one side and the other new background stamp "random background" in Distress spiced marmalade on the other half.

Oooh! I am so loving those two new backgrounds ;)

I stamped the crown from "Crowning Glory" on to some designer paper and cut out and glued to the base.

The letters were cut from Sizzix dies and coloured with Distress in peeled paint and aged mahogany, with the "U" being covered with Adirondack dimensional pearls in wild plum before being glued down with glossy accents.

The wording "special delivery" was added to each corner and a touch of Distress aged mahogany was added to the edges to age a little.

This was then matted onto another piece of card slightly larger and both mats and layers were edged with a dark marker for definition.

You really must take a look at the "Male" creations the rest of the team have made.

So don't forget.............the monthly challenge is "Male"

The rules are simple... all you need to do is make a piece of art, be it a card, ATC, wall art, altered art, etc.)... just remember that it must include some rubber stamping and the theme... and... if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry you will be entered into the draw twice! The prize is £15 worth of stamps from the Artistic Stamper shop... along with the KlingOn to mount them onto.
I hope you get chance to play at the challenge... it is open until June 30th and the winner will be chosen by shortly after :)

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
