Rock On

Hi All!  I've got another Tickled Pink Challenge card for you!  I've so loved the new releases for March and have this compulsion to color them so I figure I might as well play along :)  Now I freely admit this card is kinda hard for me because the challenge theme is For The Boys which I struggle with.  See I don't have much reason to make male cards- I'm single, I don't have any brothers and I've got two gay dads, one of whom is almost as girly as me (and I love him for it)!  So, suffice it to say boys cards are not something I make all that often :)  I did decide a little while ago that I needed to at least have some stuff that I could use for boys cards and I found the Little Yellow Bicycle Generation line which I was able to get on clearance- it's awesome for these times when I need some 'guy' stuff on the fly.  I used Lil Lad Lestat in digi form (grab him here and if you want him in digi make sure to grab him by March 31st) who just screamed black and white at me so I had to listen.  Then I figured why not just carry that monochromatic look through the whole card?  I was going for the dark, brooding 'emo' type feel- since it's not something I have much personal experience in I hope I pulled it off; and I hope I managed a decent guy card- now it's just the problem of who in the heck I'll ever give it to :)

Here's a close up of the coloring and I used the Cool Grey Copics this time instead of the Warm Grey just to shake it up a bit.

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
Tickled Pink Challenges- For The Boys
Charisma Cardz Challenge- Birthday for a Teen
**Added Challenge** I was waiting to hear whether I could do the iCopic Challenge for Black and White coloring since I didn't have the *one other color* part and got the okay so I'm also entering it there!

Supplies: Cardstock- Bazzil; DP- Echo Park- Grey Distressed, All other DP and Canvas Tag- Little Yellow Bicycle Generation; Brads- stash

What a nice "clean and simple" menscard you've made! Those tiny bits of embellishments are great on it.
Thanks for showing us your work this week at Tickled Pink Stamps.
Hugs Ingrid
