Male Room Fireworks


     A new challenge at The Male Room starts today, we would like to see a masculine project featuring fireworks. I couldn't find a 'celebration' die in my stash so I chose to make my card for my Christmas stash box.
     Using dark blue card I stamped a splodge in 2in1 glue, let it go clear and then covered it with transfer foil. To get a really smooth coverage I ran the card with the foils on through my Bigshot, this can give a nice even pressure much stronger than I can by hand.
    The skyline is die cut in the same blue card but I've inked the edge with Distress Oxide to lighten it, then added a few neon yellow dots for lit up windows. This layer was stuck flush on to the background.
    I played around with several colours for the die cut greeting and finally settled on a blue mirri card. It's a very simple card, just right for a male relative who doesn't celebrate Christmas.
    Please pop over to The Male Room blog for lots more sparkling inspiration.



I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' - Anything Christmas   (M)
A Snowflakes Promise - Anything Christmas   (M)
