Gotta love the sharing thing!!!

This (is hopefully) one of the last refrences I will make to the crafter's retreat...cause I am sure you are all sick and tired of me rabbiting on about it!!! One of the fantastic things is that you get to see and use equipment/sets/inks/mediums that you may not have had access to in the past or at all.

Like most, I find male cards more than a wee challenging, so when I saw this image I jumped at the chance to stamp a couple off and use for later. Unforunately, I do not know the name of this stamp or who makes it...so if anyone out there knows...please let me know.

I stamped the image in Stazon Black and coloured it with my watercolour pencils and crayons. I then mounted it on More Mustard and Not Quite Navy. I also distressed the edges. Here's what I came up with..


Let me know what you think. Thanks for dropping by again.

Stuff used:
Card: (SU) Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Watercolour Paper
Ink: Black Stazon, SU Not Quite Navy
Stamp: Boat image - unknown, Vintage Labels
Other bits: SU Cutter Kit, Faber-Castell Water Pencils, Lyra Aquacrayons.

Fab card Lynda, I just love the colours you've used and the focal image is great for blokes. They sure are hard to make cards for, huh?!
