JAI#28 - Just Add Manliness & Colour Combo

Woo hoo nearly the weekend ~

This week over at Just Add Ink you'll find another fun challenge. It's all about the men in our lives, with a colour challenge thrown in for good measure. Fortunately Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Kraft are some of my fave colours!

I have to admit to being slightly stumped initially. The only 'man' in my life is gorgeous kid. Now had the word 'manliness' not been in the challenge title I would have tried to be really sneaky and made it for a young male - how easy would that have been lol. On with it...this is what I came up with, hope you like.

I've popped the Kraft section up on dimensionals, along with the little Baja hearts as well. Kind of nice to use a colour other than red for 'love'. A teensy little bit of a 'knot' of choc chip ribbon and a great little sentiment from the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set. It reads 'thanks for sharing you with me'.

When I purchase sets with images and sentiments on the same piece of rubber I cut and separate them into two stamps, using two sides or ends of the same block. It becomes much more versatile and I don't have to fiddle with markers or masking when I just want to use one or the other. A great time saver. Give it a try if you haven't already.

To join in the fun head over to Just Add Ink and see all the other fabulous inspiration ideas the design team has created for you. Enjoy your weekend!
