Silhouette Sails

      The new challenge at The Male Room is to 'Make Pink Masculine'.  Well I did try....honest! This has come out looking far more lilac than pink, sorry.
     I have used one of the many sunset pictures I took at Aberearon and changed it with my photo program to look pink. It's a combination of ink, printer, camera and operator that has made it look 'not pink' at this stage.
     I printed out on a 6x4 photo card and made sure I had a white border.
     There is a black silhouette peel off stuck on to the bottom corner, with tiny wave lines added in a black fineliner pen. I have used the same pen to draw three gulls in the opposite top corner.
     The photo is mounted on grey card with a grey and white bakers twine knot added, this is stuck down with the very sticky red tape. A small anchor peel off is added to the bottom corner, then mounted on black before being stuck on to a white card.
     As usual I have not added a greeting yet, this will come later when I know who I shall send it to and what the occasion is.
     Please take a look at the DT inspiration on the challenge blog, there are some great cards to get you started, then come and join us at The Male Room.
