Mid-Way (Almost) At A Little Bit Crafty

Good morning to you all.  Friday again another week almost gone.  It is mid-way at A Little Bit Crafty for our Man-Up Challenge well it will be tomorrow but seeing as I have another card to post tomorrow for Sassy Designs Hop I decided to post my mid-way card today!  As the title suggests we want to see your masculine themed projects which can be anything handmade with a masculine theme, I have made another card:

I first saw this Kanban stamp on Liz's blog and really liked it so had to have it.  I lightly coloured it with some Prisma Pencils and cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 3.  The papers are Basil Grey Serenade and the banner is a Marianne die.  Charm and twine from my stock.  The cardstock is not black its a blueish green colour to match the papers but it has come up black on the photo.  The compass in the corner is also a stamp from the set and I used Weathered Wood DI to stamp it. Here is another view:

Liz Miller said...

What a lovely card you've made with the stamp and all the papers and embellishments to compliment it. The subtle colouring gives it a totally different look. Thank you for the mention and link to my blog in your post and I've already had a new follower from it. I've just seen my son off this morning as he's heading to your part of the country to spend the weekend with his best friend from school. The last time he made this trip he got off at the wrong station in Edinburgh and there was a panic and mad dash to the other station to catch his train to Preston. Fortunately all is going smoothly today. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

The compass and the papers are perfect for this wonderful image.
Almost all our friends have boats, so I tend to make a lot of guy birthday cards on a nautical theme.
This is really lovely!
