Ship Sketch For The Male Room

     This fortnight at The Male Room we have a sketch for you. You can create a card or a layout using our sketch, just keep it masculine and enter it in our challenge.
     This card is one of the masculine cards I will be demonstrating on Saturday at Keep On Crafting in Bury St.Edmunds, so if you're in town pop in and say hello.
     The stamps are by Woodware, Shipped Script and Bon Voyage. All stamped on white card using Archival Cobalt ink.
     The card is 5 1/4 inches square with a blue mat layer slightly smaller and stamped with the ship and some seagulls in Cobalt. The map square is 2 1/2 inches, the script square is 2 inches and the greeting square is 1 1/2 inches, they are layered on tip of each other to keep the card thin enough for posting.       I have tried to use tape runners in the past and got myself in a rotten mess but I have finally found one that works for me....High Tack Permanent by Stix2. This one has not taken flight toward the bin!!
      Come and join us at The Male Room with your creations, we have design team call running too.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
