Moving Along with the Times - Man or Boy Cards


Man or boy cards are the theme for the start of our new challenge at Moving along with the Times.  I've gone with a masculine card more likely for the men in your life using the now sadly retired Stampin' Up! set By the Tide.  It's been a favourite of mine and if you look at my previous stampin' post you'll see it was great for the girls too! 

This card also shows how useful the craft white ink can be both for heat embossing the fish on vellum at the front and a more subtle lobster just stamped and allowed to dry in the background.  I also used it with Timeless Textures which is fab for adding subtle texture and background stamping, again partly with the craft white ink.  



The countdown is on now until Martin and I head out to Barcelona to join our cruise around the Mediterranean.  My children are looking forward to having their grandparents to stay and getting rid of us for a few days. Oh the joy of parenthood!! 

Do please join us at MAWTT this fortnight and at the very least take a look at the DT offerings and the entries for lots of inspiration on those ever challenging masculine cards.
