#56 Kick Back and Relax

For our challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz, Helen from the Design Team has chosen Kick Back and Relax, there are many ways to relax, so we expect to see a variety of projects. The Design Team as usual, have created some amazing cards, please pop over to check them out.  For my project, I have been longing to use this stamp, so in my mind, he is a farmer who is taking time to rest and relax whilst walking the fields. The stamp is of course LOTV - 'In The Country'. I actually watercoloured the image with my Aquamarkers, I did use Promarkers for his face and hands. The papers are from LOTV Father Knows Best and from my stash. The greeting and circle sentiments are from Kraftyhands CD - Botanical Butterflies. I stamped the dragonflies onto green vellum, adorned with clear gems. All the papers have been distressed, then edged with Walnut Stain DI. I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see how your guyz have relaxed. Have fun.
I am entering this card into Just Inspirational Challenges for their Masculine challenge.

  9. Thank you for playing along with JIC but I am afraid the card does not fit the challenge this week, the theme was sports not Mens. Hope you can join us again in the future. Sian (JIC DT Co-Owner)
