Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card


A new challenge over at The Cupcake Craft Challenge and this weeks theme has been chosen by the lovely Denise. "Card For A Man or Boy".   I used a selection of papers from Cosmo Cricket and the stamp is The Greeting Farm. Coloured with Promarkers and a White Inkssentials Pen. The circle sentiment is cut with SU punches and the leaf border and bird are K & Co. I stippled around the image with chalk ink pads and edged all the papers with a Gold Encore Ink Pad. Nice to make a male themed card for a change, honestly haven't done that many but the stamp is gorgeous and I will be using it again! Remember to pop on over to and see what great examples the rest of the DT have put together. Have a lovely week, its a blustery day here so don't think I'll be venturing very far.
