A Gentlemen card with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about a Gentleman caller. It's a masculine themed challenge.

Because of the theme I used dark blue as the main color of the card. I think it works for a masculine vibe. It's the first time I've worked with Brusho powder. Such cool stuff. The pigment powder is extremely colorful, and it gets messy very quickly. But that shouldn't spoil the fun.


To see the process from start to finish, watch the time-lapse video below.


To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

This is so supercool Sandra! I knew you would love the Brushos. What a great idea to use them together with stamping and Distress Ink like this, I've got to try that. Love all the layers.

This is such an interesting card! I love hos you paired the darks with the lights. The blue sections reminded me of beautiful forest and I like how it's abstract enough to look like all sorts of different things!
