Just as I promised, here is another masculine card. I used it for a Father's Day card but it would work great for a birthday or general Thinking of You card.
I used this Hand Stamped Sentiment Sketch Challenge (HSSSC186) but turned it upside down.
Just as in yesterday's card, I used a piece of sandpaper to embellish this card. It gives it texture and adds the 'feel' of being on a beach (plus many men can relate to sandpaper! *smile*) The Stamp sets I used are By the Seashore and Teeny Tiny Wishes.
I would love to have been at the Oregon Coast this weekend. A couple of my friends that did go said that there were orca within sight of the beach. I guess the weather was great too!
I will just have to settle for my beachy cards for now.
I'm just starting to try my hand with alcohol markers. I used them to color the shells. I used watercolor paper on which to stamp and color. I tried the Whisper White card stock first, which is recommended, but think I will continue to use the watercolor paper until I have had some more practice.
I hope you had a great Memorial day weekend!
