Ink It Pink Challenge #2

I wanted to play along with the first challenge over on the Pink By Design blog, but I found out about it just a couple minutes before it closed:( But, since I knew it was coming this time I got in on the second one! :) LOL! The challenge is to make a masculine card. I REALLY struggle with making masculine cards. I can make cutsie baby boy cards but once they get older...not so much. Lol. :) I have seen this particular technique that I used several times on a couple of different blogs and so I had to get the PTI stamp set Grunge Me so that I could copy it! :)

 Here it is...the (what I call) random but cool stamping of splatters technique. Lol. :)
 Not surprisingly if you have been here before, everything on my card is PTI. I used True Black and Stampers Select White cardstock, Grunge Me and World's Greatest stamp sets, and Aqua Mist-Fine Linen-Dark Chocolate-Simply Chartreuse-and Summer Sunrise inks.
I am hoping to win some Pink By Design stamps because I love them as well! (Oh heck maybe I'll just buy some. Payday next week! LOL!) I have some Christmas Stamps that are Pink By Design and they are so cute! I love 'em!  :)

Hope you enjoyed my sillyness today! I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment if you wish! :)


  1. love this card!!! for someone who struggles with masculine cards, you sure rocked it!! Thanks for playing with us at PBD!!


  2. Wow! This is a total jaw dropper, Lauren!! You said you had a hard time with masculine cards, but you nailed it. I love how you clustered all the splatters and other graphic elements and then left a lot of clean, white space around it. Thanks for playing with us at Pink by Design's challenge - Ink it Pink!
