I just can't seem to stop making things at the moment and I don't actually know where I am getting the time from? needless to say I should be, probably, doing other things?? I think I am going through an highly organised period in my life, trust me, it wont last long!!.
Male cards seem all the thing at the moment, what with Fathers day being this coming weekend, be it this isn't a fathers day card but it is male themed so fits in nicely with the challenges over at
Make My Monday - for the males in my life
I have, again, used a stencil as a stamp, inking up the stencil with a selection of mini distress inks spritzing with water and then placing onto the card. The stencil is"alphabet" from Carabelle Studio.
Stamps used:-
Carabelle - Journal du Jour
Deep Red Cling - Doc Martens Boots
Tim Holtz remnant rubs finish this off.
Thanks for stopping by and see you all soon

  7. Love this Amanda! Elegant and yet masculine, a fabulous example of 'less is more', the composition draws you in. Fab!!! Chris xxx

  8. ...and at Country View Challenges - Only For Men - if you fancy it!

    Fantastic card - I love the colours (why should men only get black, brown and blue?! - and besides, those are my favourites too - and I'm no man!!) and the terrific stamping. The remnant rubs are a great finishing touch.

    And oh how I hear you on the time front... I've slipped out of organised mode, and now have that horrid feeling that I'm going to miss something out altogether!
