Welcome to my 4th and final post as one of the August Guest Designer's over at Cardz4Guyz. This week the challenge is a tricky one...... Myth and Magic.
Not finding anything particular in all of the millions of stamps I have (!) that definitely screamed Myth or Magic I decided I'd go with a hidden message - which seems like magic!!
When you look through these fun glasses, a message suddenly appears on the framed panel! I used Secret Agent Glasses die from PTI to die cut the glasses and the Top Secret and Restricted Access stamps are from Secret Agent stamp set, also from PTI. The green frame was die cut with 2 Stitched Rectangle dies from Waltzingmouse and the stamp I used to 'camouflage' the sentiments is Mini Crackle (presently on sale!) from Waltzingmouse.
when you hold the red acetate lens of the glasses up to the pattern (stamped in Hibiscus Burst - similar to the red acetate) - the sentiments (stamped in Simply Chartreuse) are visible! This one is "Sending warm thoughts for a speedy recovery' (Healing Touch Sentiments - PTI)
This one is "Hope you're back on your feet again soon" (an old wooden stamp from Inky Antics)
and the third one is 'Feel better' (an old wooden stamp from Art Stamps)
Please join us over at the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge where you'll find lots of inspiration from the Design Team - there's a new challenge every Tuesday. I have really enjoyed my time as Guest DT for August and I thank the team for inviting me to join in. It certainly has been a challenge to create something masculine each week!
