Challenge #33
All About Boys or Men

This fortnights challenge them has been chosen by DT sister Sue, a super challenge theme as we all need to have some of the 'men' cards in our stash but they are often not the first we turn to to make when we feel creative.  I am rather lucky as it is my brothers birthday very soon and this was the perfect opportunity to make his card.

I have seen quite a few cards around recently using the eclipse method which I think looks to cool and uncluttered, with that in mind I thought I would try it our on my brother's card.  I first used Distress Oxides to create the background and then stamped a woodland scene using stamps from the Creative Stamper magazine.  Next came the tricky bit where it could so easily have all gone wrong.  i don't have the large letter dies so used my Silver Bullet and SCAL software to create the text and do the cutting.  Phew, I all lined up perfectly and I could breathe again lol.  To finish off the card I mounted the card front on black and then copper papers.  Back to the Distress Oxides and I used the colours of the card to colour both the card front blank and the inside of the card.
