Blue Horses

Do you like designing cards for the men? If so I hope you've checked out The Male Room, especially this week where the challenge is to use shades of blue. I made one card and got carried away with the stamping that it ended up as two!

I used a stamp set from Visible Image which is themed by the French Revolution and I only used one blue ink colour, Pacific Point, and achieved the shades by stamping off once, twice or three times. For this card I also used my 'go to for male cards' stamp Hardwood, as a background. The fleur de lys shape was stamped and fussy cut out to add a bit of dimension.

You can see better in this photograph....

Then I wondered if the background detracted from the horse image, particularly the lightest shade. So I made this card, a bit more clean and simple

This one is just pure stamping, and a mat of coloured card stock, blue of course. I think it's my favourite but I still like my first effort so I decided to share them both.


  1. Gorgeous - love them both - J xx

  2. Awesome image - love the wood grained bg one~

  3. I really like your take on the challenge. Both these cards are absolutely fabulous. They both have a real sense of motion with the way you stamped the horse. Love them.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
