Oh, do I struggle when it comes to creating something "masculine". I don't find that I am a "pink and bling" kind of girl as I do quite enjoy greens and browns and blues and purples...and yellows..and orange, OK, I know you get it, I am a gal of all sorts of color. Yet when it comes to not being able to add bling or ribbon or pearls THAT is where I struggle. For this card I did add some twine, which I think is still quite masculine (and that is only because my jute is still in my car from Gadget Girls Retreat Weekend...back in the beginning of MAY!) ....slow I'd say!
The side border is created with Kraft Resist paper and Colorwashed again with the orange. Blue twine and an anchor stamp was added to side. A nautical sentiment finishes off this card.
I think it turned out quite masculine and I love the blue and orange combination.
