SHOPPING OUR STASH #207 - For the Boys

Hello and welcome! It's the start of a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, it's all about the guys: we want to see cards and projects with a guy theme! Here's the card I made:

 here's the inside:

Yes, I realized after I made the card that I just used that stamp only a couple SOS challenges ago. Let's just chalk it up to me showing you how versatile it is. (See what I did there?!) My favorite technique is the chalkboard technique. This just never gets old for me.  After making the main panel, I dug out some ancient copper brads and stuck them in the corners. I went around the edges of the base with walnut stain DI before adhering the main panel onto it with thin foam squares. Of course, there's a little snark on the inside. ☺

I hope to see you play along for our guy themed challenge at Shopping Our Stash! Please be sure to visit and leave some bloggy love on my teammies blogs. They made some fabulous creations for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for hanging out, and I hope you have a great day!

Chalkboard technique makes perfect sense for you, Chris, since you are so very good at it! This card is a perfect example. :) And oh, look, there's some snark to it, too.
