#74 Masculine Inspiration Challenge

Use the above photo as inspiration for a masculine card!

You could use the tractor itself, the color, the metal, the background field, lots of inspiration there!

Check out the Design Team's projects for more inspiration:

Lesley Croghan (Owner/Creator)
Nance Salkeld (You are HERE)

Monthly Featured Designer - Patti from Stationary Styles 
Weekly Guest Designer - Wanda Cullen from Cullen-ary Creations

I don't have any farm or tractor stamps, alas.  Hmmmmm. However, I do have some farm animal stamps from Your Next Stamp that I used and my inspiration came from the red and metal of the tractor and "farmy" things to inspire my card --

As I stated, I used the farm animal stamps from Your Next Stamp.  The sentiment and the "snort' are also Your Next Stamp and coordinate with the farm animal set.  I fussy cut the animals and placed them inside a photo die (Taylored Expressions) I cut from pattern paper.  The wonky circle in the top corner behind the photo die is the inside of a wreath die from WPlus9.  It looked like a saw blade to me so I cute one from silver paper along with the curly stitched dies, also from Your Next Stamp.  I thought these would resembled barbed wire.  For my background I chose red woodgrain paper that reminded me of the side of a barn.

For Following Challenges:
I used the sketch from Fusion for layout inspiration --

Now it's your turn to get inky and share your masculine cards inspired by our inspirational photo this week!  You might be one of our next Weekly Guest Designers!  YAY!

Challenge Blessings!
