Papertake and Claire Curd's Stampin Chic Challenge

Hi i hope your having a great day? Ive been to the dentist again sob sob but the work is all done now and i dont have to go back for 6 whole month's woo hoo lol.

I had a spare hour so decided to make a card and it fits 2 challenge's the First is Papertake's Challenge which this week there is a great sketch by Dawny to follow and you all know me love's a sketch lol.

The Second Challenge the card is for is Claire Curd's Stampin Chic and seeing i have bought the new men's stamp set i thought i would give this week's challenge ago which is Paper Piecing which i have never tried before but i gave it ago and was quite pleased with the result. I found some checked paper in my stash and paper pieced this chap's trouser's and his cap so he matched lol. I also had another go at destressing which im beginning to enjoy i coloured in the image with Pro Marker's and i inked the edge's of the image in brown ink.

Item's Used for my card :

Claire Curd's Signiture Range Mens Stamp Set

BG Archaic Paper's

Papermania Ribbon

Kanban Bling

Pro markers

Thank's for looking.

Paula xxxx

Fabulous male card! Love that paper! What a great idea to use a "man" stamp for a male card, duh, why didn't I think of that??!!
I've been rackin' my brain for an idea...I'll have to dig around and find some man images...thanks for the inspiration!!!
Hope you're enjoying your day!
blessings, Maria

Another of my favourite basic grey papers, it looks great with the stamp, and I love the "top bloke" sentiment.
