Masculine card challenge - Digi Darla's


It's challenge time over at Digi Darla's Challenges again, and this week's theme for Challenge #51 is "Make it Masculine."   One winner will receive 5 Digi Darla images, and any entries using a DD image get entered into a SECOND drawing for 3 images, so you could conceivably win 8, yes, eight Digi Darla images. How nice is THAT!  We would love to have you join us - please head on over to see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have come up with, then feel free to share your creative talents with us!

My card today is using DD Super Star Word Art, which you can find here.  I outlined the letters in glitter pen to make them stand out a bit more against the red circle and used CI Paints on the tiny stars.

The stars on the background paper were airbrushed with a dark gray Copics pen using die cut stars as the masks.  I used one of the same dies to cut some crafter's foil for the embellishment and also used some of the foil for the layer behind the red.

It was a little too silvery shiny for my taste, so I sponged on some Antique Silver and Onyx Creative Inspirations paints to tone things down a bit, then topped it with a leather knot.

I sprayed the whole thing with sheer silver shimmer paint afterwards and forgot to mask the red circle first, which was somewhat upsetting; however, I discovered lo and behold an art gum eraser erased the silver spray right off without disturbing anything else.  Hallelujah!

Thank you for joining me today, and I do hope you'll join us at Digi Darla's Challenges!

Happy crafting!

Love it Shea! The silver spray over the top really makes everything stand out. An art gum eraser...hmmm I have soemthing called Adhesive Remover from EK tools that I use. I bet the gum eraser is cheaper! Thanks for the tip.
