I have missed a few challenges and these were made with them in mind. 2 had a male themed challenge but it so happened that I wanted to use my favourite technique that I haven't used in a while which works out! The top card I used my brayer and rolled the colour on which is called Autumn. I stamped in black dye the image. I used the cuddlebug which I also love for the green paper and mounted it on the nice brown paper and finished it off with gold trim. When I took the picture the flash just seemed to hit the right spot eh?? The 2nd card I used my cuddlebug to cut out the nestibilities design. I then used my stencil with grapes and covered it with paste which creates a 3d layer. I coloured it with pastel chalks. I used, as almost always, the trim on the edges. Oh yeah I also distressed the inner card  for an aged look. It makes me think of wine..let me dream.....I entered these challenges for the anything goes challenge for Make It Monday and My Favourite Technique for the Stampman Challenge and Craft Your Passion which I hope you do see the distressed look, or I shall be distressed:). There are so many techniques I love.... hard to choose
