Flying High


     We have a new challenge over at The Male Room, we would like to see Birds on your masculine themed card. Please pop over and see the DT inspiration, including the great cards from our new teamies, Jane and Sue T.
     My card reflects my love of the seaside, I happily spend hours just walking along collecting shells and driftwood, it's somewhere I like to go and blow the cobwebs away.
     There are a mixture of stamps from Creative Expressions and Inkadinkado used on this card, all stamped with Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire. I have worked the ink a little with a damp paintbrush on the gulls wings and the beach.
     The image panel is mounted on a white card blank that has had the edge coloured with Chipped Sapphire. this way it matches the image, a simple card that could be used for any occasion.
   

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Boots - Things With Wings
Scrappy Hands - Blue and White
Cardz 4 Guyz - Flight

  4. Lovely, tranquil scene (although I expect in real life those gulls would be pretty noisy!). Great idea about using the ink to colour the backing card, it keeps it perfectly monochrome. Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz

  5. Rocky- before I even noticed the word peaceful that is what I immediately felt when I saw your card. This would make a great sympathy card too without the says.
