Two Masculine Cards

Hi you all! Hope you enjoying a good Sunday. I slept late today - a real wonder - for which I was very grateful, as mostly I wake up before the birdies get going!
Over at 'Out of a Hat Creations' the ladies want to see us using our fave techniques this week. Difficult, as I have so many. But I decided on using layers, which is something I love, whether in painting, scrapping, card- or tag-making. I have made 2 more masculine tags in muted shades, using my much loved umbrella man from TH. I have used different papers from Bo Bunny, Graphics 45 and a steampunk freebie from 'free vintage digis'.









Okay, that's all for today! I will be back on Tuesday with my new circus tag. Take care, and thanks for coming by!

  1. Just briiliant work on these cards and layering always looks so classy I think.

    Your link on Out of a Hat doesn't bring us to here Valerie so if you would like to add it again it would be wonderful as we don't want anyone to miss your terrific work.

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. Always hard for us girlie types to make "guy" cards - sometimes they are just too plain! Yours are great - mini mixed media artworks!
