TSMONDAY, Masculine Gus!

Happy Monday, time for another fun challenge from Totally Stampalicious! This weeks challenge is to make a masculine card or project, and that's super easy when you have DIY Gus!

I coloured Gus with copics, and added some crystal effects to his glasses. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but when I found out Totally Stampalicious was going to bring Gus to life in stamp form, I came across this dp by Kaisercraft called Konstrukt and it seemed the perfect match. I had my local stamp store order a 6x6 pad for me, and I'm so glad I did. They aren't exactly your traditional male colours but I love it!

I used last weeks sketch challenge SC315. The card base is black, with a layer of white and then 2 of the panels are from the dp pad I mentioned above. The last panel is tin foil. I glued the tin foil to a piece of cardstock, then embossed it with the diamond plate embossing folder.

Gus and the sentiment are both popped up!

So come and join us, just upload your creation to Totally Stampalicious, and you may even win something! The Guest Designers will be chosen from those who particiate in the weekly challenge...how cool is that!

Congratulations to Lori and Julie for winning the February and March Guest Designer Spots!

Have a Great Day!
