One Layer Card - one for the boys



A one layer card with a masculine theme. There are two challenges I want to enter this card for the Addicted to  CAS Challenge where the cue card is Masculine and the Charisma Cardz Challenge which is a one layer card.


The birthday greeting was printed directly onto the white linen card using a computer font.  The background was created by stamping directly onto an acrylic block, spraying with a mist of water then stamping directly onto the card.  The lighthouse was stamped in black Stazon and elements of the stamp coloured with metalic distress inks.  A doodled line was drawn round the colour block to finish.

This is a stamp I use regularly  for male cards, it can be samped out a few times and the elements cut out to create a 3D effect card, or just used on a one layer card as above.
