The Sunday Stampers - Man Oh Man



Well I managed to join in with the The Sunday Stampers challenge this week (just in the nick of time!) and the theme was to make something with a man on it! I made a card this time using a paper artsy stamp that has lots of men on! I covered a blank card with paper from the 7 Gypsy Morroco Journey pack. I swiped some white card with my milled lavendar distress ink and stamped the image with my very favourite vintage sepia versafine pad (I really must get another colour of versafine - I love this pad cus it picks up all the detail but it will run out soon at the rate I'm using it!) Then I mounted the image on some dark card and decided to put brads into each corner, but I didnt like it so I took them out and threaded fibres through instead and then mounted this on to the card. Thanks Hels I enjoyed doing this challenge :)
