Make It A Guy Thing

For the next two weeks, at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, we would like to see a project for a guy. It could be a Valentine card, or any other card or project for a guy in mind. Our sponsor Cottage Crafts is now offering the overall winner a chance to choose their own prize to a limit of 7euros. Please pop over and take a look at the amazing catwalk.  The Fashionettes have again produced some amazing pieces for your pleasure. My husband adores the great outdoors, he is a keen bird watcher, so the type of card I usually make for him is of the countryside. This card is not only using Sheena Douglass's stamps but is similar to one she recently made on C&C TV.  The stamps are the Faith set in the Sketchy series. I used TH Distress inks to add all of the colour, by blending, directly stamping and as a watercolour. I look forward to visiting your blog to see your projects for the guys in your life.
Remember, STAMPING must be a main feature and be clearly seen.  Have fun, thank you to any who visit and comment on my card, your ocmments are always appreciated.

  9. A gorgeous card Caz and just love the bird theme. Lovely colours too and so perfect for a bird watcher (something I like doing with the huge variety we get in our garden which include pheasants and a sparrow hawk which might not seem strange until you hear that we live one road back from the sea!)
    Hugs, Fliss xx
