Hamish meets Creative Inspiration

The challenege over at Creative Inspirations this week is to make a card for a male! I really struggle to make men's cards so this was a challenge for me. Here is what I came up with.

I borrowed this Hamish stamp off of my mum. Whilst I am a huge fan of sugar nellie stamps I don't own this one! One of the great perks of sharing your hobby with your mum, you can swap stash!! I coloured him in with my distress inks and whispers before cutting him out with my nesties. I also added gloss to his shoes to make them patent {not sure you can pick this up on the picture}. Papers are BG archiac and the sentiment is from craftwork cards. I also added a few eyelets from my stash, don't use these very often so thought I would dig them out!

Well I had a lovely relaxing weekend and enjoyed the sunshine, hope you did too! I even got some craft time in!! Yay!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
