Blog comments close on Friday, June 8th at 11:59pm (EDT). The winners will be announced on The Twinery's blog and Rubbernecker's Stampin' Sisterhood blog.

The Project:
I created two cards using the following stamps from the Moulin Rouge stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamp Company:
I used the 'splatter' stamp to create a gradient-style background for each card panel, then stamped a single focal image on each panel in black.
Each card is accented with twine from The Twinery (Cantaloupe and Honeydew).
In order to help the second card keep a more masculine feel, I decided to just add a few knots in the twine in lieu of a bow. I love how twine can easily be incorporated into any style of project - feminine or masculine.

Thanks for stopping by today!
