Challenge #65 - Technique

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer break. Over here in the States most of the schools have been on break for at least a month, but I know that UK schools are only just about to start. This time of year always brings a big change to our regular routines - and hopefully you have time to craft. And, perhaps, get your kids involved in crafting too. So our challenge here at The Male Room - TMR#65 for the next couple of weeks is a really fun one, we want you to use:

on your masculine projects. To me, this means getting inky and have lots of fun with paints, glue, etc. We can't wait to see what you make. Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

You have until midnight (BST) on Tuesday 1st August, that's 7.00pm EDT in the States, to play along with our inky challenge. Do have fun!

I didn't manage to make a card for the start of this challenge. However, I was at a card class at Scrappy Chic yesterday where we made 8 tiny cards, little 3" x 3" cards, and two of my cards are perfect for our add texture challenge. Here they are:

Full details can be found on my blog - Deborah's Gems. And a quick reminder that the deadline for submission to this challenge is midnight (BST) Tuesday 18th July, that's 7.00pm EDT in the States. Have fun!!
