CIUWK ---- say what?

A new acronym for you - CIUWK. It stands for Cooking It Up With Katie and today is the start of a new challenge! Here is the recipe:

1. Be charming

2. Make it Male
3. Use 3 colors only (not including white to stamp on)

Ahhh....so charms and male really had me in a creative pickle. I don't have a lot of charms and I don't have a lot of male themed stamps and trying to pair what I do have was the real challenge. But once I found the components, the card went together quickly and easily.

Image and sentiment from Unity Stamp Co. Cardstock is from PTI and patterned paper is from....umm, I don't know. Sorry. I worked with ink colors to match the DP (which includes the recipe 3 colors - red, black and aqua) and I added a metal charm which has the word "adventure" on it (can't see in the photo). A little paper piercing and all done, masculine style!

Want to play along with us? Just follow the recipe above, add your creation to your blog or other online gallery and then head over to the CIUWK blog and link up! And be sure to check out the rest of the DT while you're there.

Have a creative day!
