Winners - Challenge#26 - Theme

Good morning!  Welcome to The Male Room.  It's time to announce the winner of our first challenge of the year.  Our theme was Anything Goes and you guys really rocked the challenge.  We had 120 submissions - thank you all for playing along.  It did, however, make it quite tough to pick the winners.  We ended up with two overall winners along with three honourable mentions:


We like the fun fishing diecuts and matching punny sentiment.
Super layout with clean, crisp lines.  Fab colours too.

Super personalised card.  Love the texture and grungy feel.
Great neutral colours.

(in order of submission)

Ultra clean and simple.
We like the addition of the little heart in the centre of the "o".

Wonderful watercolour background which creates such depth.
Super line image and the sentiment goes so well with the image.

This is fabulous - an interactive card. 
This image shows the whole of the card - but check out Anja's blog to see the video!

Congratulations to you all.  Don't forget to pick up your badges from the tab at the top of the page and display them on your blogs.

Hello and welcome to our first challenge of 2016.  We've decided to keep things nice and simple for our first challenge with an ANYTHING GOES theme.  Just remember that your project - and it can be anything - card, tag, ATC, scrapbook or Project Life layout, 3D art - whatever you choose, it must have a masculine style.

Now for some inspiration projects from the Design Team.  Do drop by our individual blogs and leave some comments, we all like to read them. Have fun!

The challenge will run until midnight (GMT) Tuesday 19th January (that's 7.00pm EDT).  Let your creative juices go wild - anything will do, but it MUST have a masculine feel!
