All about the men at SplodgeAway

Good morning folks, how's your week going? Today's card is for our 'All about the men' week at SplodgeAway, pop over and have a peek at all the gorgeous projects from my talented teamies.

I had a play with my gelli plate and two SplodgeAway masks, Complex Frame and the man silhouette from the Altered Art Kit (you can find them both here). I made quite a few prints using some gorgeous metallic Maimeri Acrylic paints - this began as one of the prints. The paint acts as a resist  so I used distress inks and a spritz of water on my SplodgeAway mat to make an inky background and swooshed my print through it. I really liked this effect although its a bit camera shy so I didn't want to cover it up, I just added some twine, seam binding ribbon, a button , twine and a little key charm.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Craft room Challenge: stencil/mask
A Creative Romance: add metal
Craftitude: anything goes/use twine or string
Crafty Hands: anything goes
Rhedd and Rosie's: anything goes
Simon says stamp: anything goes
thanks so much for taking the time to visit today, 
Claire xx
