SugarPea Designs' SPD05 Masculine Challenge

Happy hump day friends!  We are starting a new challenge today over on the SugarPea Designs Blog and our theme is masculine cards.  If you are like me then you may struggle with masculine cards, but I found the perfect SugarPea Designs stamp to use for this challenge!

With all the graduation ceremonies going on this time of year, I decided to use Hat's Off To You for my card today.  I can always use an extra grad card, right?  First I stamped my background cardstock with the diploma from the stamp set.  I colored the cute image with copics, and then proceeded to drop my copic marker on the image (under his arm that's holding the diploma) ... gasp!!!  I tried removing the ink with the colorless blender but I wasn't able to remove all of it so I decided to add a few enamel dots ... yay!  All I can say is thank goodness for embellishments :)  

 Play along with any stamp you like - but if you use SugarPea Designs, we'll top your voucher up to $15!

Combine our challenge with any other challenge(s)!
