November 4, 2010 Challenge 3

And one more challenge response card for the day. This is the Sketch Challenge from Just Add Ink this week. I will be making another with this sketch, but I'm pretty happy with this one. I make so few masculine cards that I get pretty excited when I turn out a good one! :) In fact, I like it so much that I made two, although they differ slightly. Oh, and the Navy looks better in real life than it does on screen/in picture!

Stamp Set: Afterthoughts [except without the afterthought LOL! I admit I only chose that set because I can ink only the phrase I want with markers and leave off the "afterthoughts" that give the set it's name!! :)]
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Paper: Crumb Cake, Elegant Soiree DSP, Not Quite Navy textured, Bashful Blue
Tools: my hands for wrinkling up the Bashful Blue!, Sticky Strip - under the strips of hemp twine
Embellishments: hemp twine, Antique Brad (my last one!! must get more)/Pewter Brads

Thanks, again, for clicking over to my blog!


  1. These are great, Ellen! I like them a lot. Hadn't even thought to use that paper for masculine cards, but it's perfect!

  2. Beautiful take on the challenge Ellen! Thanks for playing. xx

  3. FAB card for a male! Perfect combination! Hugs xxaxx

  4. Love your cards, what a great layout/colour idea for mens cards.
