Manly Card

The Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week is to show men.  The layout of my card is from the sketch at Mojo Monday #208.

I decided to use the sketch like a grid card and try to put together 4 panels of manliness using Artistic Outpost stamps and 7 Gypsies paper.


The sets used include: Artistic Outpost - Steampunk, Huck Finn, Paris Exposition, and Loverly London
Lots of distressing with the sponge and Vintage Photo. Touches of watercolor pencils and stamped using Ranger Archival Black Ink. Finished off with a touch of white gel pen highlights.

It's Raining... It's Pouring..... More rain in the forecast for us today and tomorrow. 

Hope your day is seeing a little sunshine!

  12. Excellent Sue! I love the grid you have created and the way you have connected each block. Love the colours too.

    Sorry to rub it in but on this day you were having all the rain we were having glorious 'summer' weather here in most of the UK. Certainly in Wales where I was having my little holiday.
