Crafty Cardmakers #23 Mens cards!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!! Its Man Card time over at Crafty Cardmakers! You know how much I just luuuuuurve man cards (NOT!) hehehe!

I'm rather late posting this week, had soooo much I've needed to do, my schedule is all squiffy and my youngest DD is driving me round the bend! My eldest DD has flown off to Crete for her first holiday without us old duffers so hope she has a good time! She's learnt not to have ice in her drink lol!

Our Special guest over at Crafty Cardmakers is Sandy Hulsart who has a wonderful stampscapes & photoscapes blog here

I was extremely short on time to make my card this week (uploaded 8 minutes before live!) so this was a really quick make using an alcohol inked background I saw on Sandy's blog and thought That'll do!

I applied alcohol inks with a stiple brush and blending solution, dropped a few droplets of ink on, dropped more drops of solution on and gave it a spray with iridescent gold glimmer mist (Well I have to have sparkle dont I!!)

Stamped the mountains and cove, oak tree branch and man in boat and used brilliance ink around the edge to make a spotlight. Its all done on linen card for a textured effect. I've also spread paper glaze on the water bit.

10 minute make (which is totally unheard of from me!) and I've no mans birthdays for a while ha!

Definitely doesn't look like a quick make! Absolutely gorgeous, and it doesn't assume the man in question is interested in the standard list of 'men's hobbies' - all that's needed is to appreciate a lovely image.
