The Challenge #62 {Masculine Inspiration}

Hello and Welcome to Week Four at The Challenge! This week we are focusing on creating "Masculine" cards using an inspiration photo!

Are you looking for last week's winner? Please CLICK HERE.

Each week we have a fun challenge for your to try!!! We do a different style of challenge each week! We like to mix things up and keep them fresh!

Here is the monthly rotation:
Week 1-Sketch
Week 2-Colours
Week 3-Photo Inspiration
Week 4-Masculine Photo Inspiration
Week 5-Wild Card (a surprise!)

For my card, I decided to really go for neutrals and textures. I got out some burlap, added some rope and did some "stamping" with script and ink splots. Easy to assemble and I hope "masculine" enough!

The design team have created some inspiration to get you in the crafting mood! Come and join us! Our weekly winner will be our next Guest Designer! So come and join the fun!

This month we were thrilled to welcome Michelle Leone as our Featured Designer! Thank you so much, Michelle for all of your hard work!
