Guy Style... by Josefine

It's time to embrace our masculine creativity.

This month we hope to inspire and be inspired on projects catering to the Men. This doesn't mean it has to be grungy or anything. Just show us what you have in mind for the guys in your life.

 Craft it, Picture it and Link it. #ECMAY2018

Guy themes challenge me and I assume I'm not the only one. So I tried to go for something more grungy instead of getting stuck on the guy topic. So I started with coloring the backgrounds of my tags in settle colors. The focal point needed to pop a little more. For that I combined two brighter colors and several different Emerald Creek embossing powders (Iridescent Shimmer and Fractured Ice) to make it shine and add some texture.

To accompany the very bright stenciled circle on every tag, I added a couple more, but in the same settle colors as the background. Those were also embellished with Charred Gold and Iridescent Shimmer embossing powders.

At the end I added a sentiment die cut to every tag, also embossed. For that I used Charred Gold, Hammered Metal and Salted Raven to mix it up a little. Now it needed a few ribbons and a little fairy (I know, not really a guy thing...) and I was done.

Here is the how-to video:
