The Male Room Challenge- Spots and Stripes

 

This week the challenge at the Male Room is "spots and stripes". Oh that leaves quite a bit of interpretation doesn't it?




I grabbed this set from Mama Elephant and messed around a lot before I came up with this card. I had such fun putting this scene together that the ideas really starting flying around.

I decided to try a "land, sea, air" theme.


AAA cards is having an interesting challenge that my "nauti-cool" card fits. They are looking for "waterworld and dies"




What do you think? It works huh?



My DH George gave me the highest complement on this trio of cards. he said, "I would buy these if I saw them."

I can't wait to see how all of you approach this awesome challenge at the Male Room!

My partner owns a red London bus so I'm always looking for card ideas for him. This look is fresh and modern and fun.

Wow! You really rocked this challenge - love all the cards. I adore the red London double decker, but I think the ombre sky behind the boat is fab. Great work xxx
