Three Muses - Man

The challenge for this week at The Three Muses is to make anything with man or men. For this challenge, I borrowed this Lost Coast Designs stamp and made two cards. On the first card I used alcohol inks on glossy paper. The boys are stamped again and adhered with 3D tape.

In a magazine I came across a card on which this stamp was used, so I decided to make a second card. The background is made with distress inks. The hats and numbers are coloured with Faded Jeans distress ink, then I added pearl powders and fixed it with water. This creates a pearlescent effect. Indybev: you should go out and get some of these inks yourself :-)

Los tres caballeros was also a music group back in the sixties. A music video is on youtube. You may also find their music on Amazon. Thank you Ozstuff for pointing me to this music!

Het thema van deze week bij The Three Muses is Mannen. Voor deze uitdaging heb ik een Lost Coast Designs stempel gebruikt en dit keer twee kaarten gemaakt. De eerste kaart is gemaakt met alcohol inkten op glossy papier. De jongens zijn opnieuw gestempeld en met 3D tape op de kaart geplakt.

In ARTspecially magazine nummer 6 zag ik een kaart waarin precies deze stempel gebruikt werd. Op basis van dit voorbeeld heb ik een tweede kaart gemaakt. De achtergrond is gekleurd met distress inkten. De hoeden en nummers heb ik gekleurd met Faded Jeans distress inkt, vervolgens heb ik er pearl poeder over gedaan, en daarna besprenkeld met water. Dit fixeert de pearl poeders en geeft een glitter effect.

I am old enough to remember a song called "the three caballeros" which puts me around the time of Noah and his ark! I love the looks on the faces of your three caballeros and I love their hats. Both cards are sensational but if I had to choose a favourite it would be the one with the wonderful muted green/gold/blue background.
Great work, Mark. Thanks so much for joining in the challenge this week.

Great cards, Mark, and it's fun to see two very different looks with the same stamp. Thanks for the Utube link. I remember Los Tres Cabelleros! (The inks are growing increasingly tempting!)
