Make It A Guy Thing at FSC!

All of us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges are wanting you to join us for some STAMPING fun and our theme for this challenge is, "Make It A Guy Thing."  Since Valentine's Day is only two weeks away, I used Cupid as my guy and tried to keep it more masculine and vintage, as to give to a guy!  Not sure I was successful at my attempt, but Cupid is a Guy!   Wait until you see what my Stamping DT Sisters have for your viewing pleasure.   We are also going to link this us at Beverly's Pink Saturday
The stamps I used are Stampin Up and Stampendous for the crackle.  I first stamped my center heart using Brown Craft and then clear embossing.  Made a mask to cover the center heart and then stamped the next two hearts and again inked and clear embossed.  Used Distress Inks to color my tag background and then stamped the crackle.  I did color the little leaves around the hearts and stamped and cut a forth heart for the center and gave it a touch of color.  Added some Stickles around the heart!  Cupid was stamped, cut and colored with chalks.  His wings are covered in Rock Candy Stickles and his little bottom cover was inked with Clear Spica Glitter.  Trust me, it is there!  I alcohol inked the mesh bag, word stick and key and used Black Spica Glitter in the Kiss!  The tag edges were distressed and shaded. 

Well we would love to see your take on this challenge, so come on by and join in on all the fun!   Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and thanks so much for visiting!

Stickles:  Vintage Photo, Rock Candy
Distress Inks:  Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy, Fired Brick
Stampin Up Markers:  Green Galore, Pink Piroquette,

Hi Terry. This is a gorgeous tag! I love the masking and the embossing sets it off...I especially love the colours that you have used. That is a gorgeous shade of pink and the brown crackle blends in so well. Perfect for a guy.
