365 Cards Day 110 meets Papertake Weekly




Found another lovely sketch over at Papertake Weekly Challenge being Dawny's Sketch #17 which gave me the base for the great challenge at 365 Cards Day 110 which is a 'Masculine Card featuring Argyle pattern'
Took me ages to find my paper, but knew I had some somewhere.
My sister gave me a huge bag of 12" x 12" papers which she got from Costco and this is one of them.
Haven't got much in the way of stamps or stamped images for men but came upon this I had watercoloured with Marvey Le Plumes and oh! what a job trying to go over and over it with ProMarkers to try and get the colouring to go with the paper LOL!! I thought I was going to burst a blood vessel, because once something is 'the thing I need to use' it has to be right.
The base card is a burgundy leather look. The faux flap is pierced all along the edges but doesn't really show up and the great screw head brad is out of my stash.
The piece of 'paper' under the image is a metal look paper called 'Scrap Metal' . To finish it off I popped on a little sticker word by Kay & Co.
This turned out to be a saga, sorry, thanks for reading.
