This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Green and Brown Time and Tide Collage Repost

Another of my masculine cards now for you. This one didn't actually stamp out properly but thought it might look like it was supposed to look like that!!! Well, that's my excuse!!

The Time Piece Collage image, from the Paper Artsy Clocks 3 stamp set, was stamped using Papermania Olive Green ink and heat embossed with Heat It Up! Moss embossing powder. The image was then die cut using a standard square Nestabilities die and distressed using Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks. This was then matted onto squares of green glimmer paper and brown card.

A panel of the beige and cream chequerboard paper from the HOTP Earth Tones Cardmaker's Creative Pack was distressed around the edges using the Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks. The sentiment, also from the Clocks 3 stamp set, was stamped in the lower corner of the patterned paper using the Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink and a length of brown woven ribbon was adhered across the centre of the panel.

The patterned panel was matted onto the green paper and brown card. The image panel was then added over the ribbon and two brown card candy from Craftwork Cards were added in diagonal corners.
I did enter this card into lots of challenges but as Blogger decided to delete this post, I'm reposting the original version I had saved witohut all the challenges - hopefully Blogger will restore the latest version, but knowing my luck they won't as I had it saved before. This also means I have no idea which challenges I entered - D'oh!!

Here are the ones I've found:

Another of your excellent male cards Kathleen this is fabulous, I love the stamp and the fact that it didn't stamp properly doesn't matter it looks like it's supposed to be like that. Love it! Thanks for joining us at HCTB's challenge.

Am so useless at these - this is brill. Like the muted colours on this and a bit different too, not the traditional standard male type image.
