Grab your codes and shop.  But first, a little inspiration from me..........

I am back from my annual trip to the old country and I think Mr Mojo is still in the holiday mood cos it was a bit of a slow start with this project.  I knew I wanted to use Carmen's Veranda Salvador Dali stamp, and that gave me the idea to go bit crazy.  So I just grabbed a whole slew of stamps and made a masculine themed collage.

I started by stamping Carmen's Veranda Salvador Dali, masking and then stamping Carmen's Veranda Hourglass with black archival ink.
I masked the Hourglass and stamped Lost Coast Designs Weeping Man, Magic Dictionary Words and the chief from the Mayan Hieroglyphs with brown archival ink, masking each image as I went along.  Then I decided to fill in the background using the Mayan Stele stamp.
I stamped the Mayan Stele three times with grey archival ink and unmasked everything!!!
Scary moment LOL.
Hmmm, not bad! I coloured the images with Promarkers and gave the background a Brusho watercolour wash.  Then I used a square stitched die to cut my panel to size.
I inked the edges with brown archival and mounted on a brown base card.  I decided also to add some more blue to the Magic panel, to make it blend in a bit more.
OK, that's it from me.  I'll be back tomorrow with a new challenge so get stamping and link up your For The Men inspired makes by midnight tonight for a chance to win Lost Coast Design dollars!!  And don't forget to use the Black Friday codes and grab yourself a bargain.  Hugz
