Masculine Card - ColourQ Challenge #84

I was playing around with some beautiful collage stamps from Chapel Road Artstamps and  the lovely colors from the ColourQ #84 Challenge to create this masculine card:


The Paper Crafts Sketch Magazine had this lovely sketch which uses scraps to create a grid card and left the sentiment to the left. I liked that design and decided to use it and a bunch of my white cardstock scraps to create a grid card.  The stamps are all Class Act Chapel Road Artstamps.  The colors are Ranger Distress inks (Antique Linen, Faded Jeans, Forest Moss) and Memento Dandelion.


Here is the inspiration photo from the challenge:

Happy Thursday! I will be back tomorrow with something very feminine for the Lily Pad Cards challenge using some new stamps from the Craft's Meow!
