Cards For The Boys and a craft room sneak peek

Hi everyone, I have been sorting out my stamps as part of my craft room reorganisation with the intention of using some of the long forgotten ones hidden at the bottom of boxes.  There is not much more sorting to do and I am pleased with the space created by putting the tall units on their sides, giving me more flat space for working.  Here is a sneak peek..

I have made two male cards this week using Sizzix mixed media dies and black, white and navy papermilldirect card. 

This card was made using a Banksy inspired stamped image  Bee Crafty - Ghetto Rat.  It was stamped onto a small piece of inked background and layered up onto die cut card and a black card blank.  The sentiment was computer generated.

For the above card the die cut card was matted onto a distress oxide blended background then onto a navy card blank.  The corners stamped with Stampers Anonymous Urban Chic stamps in blue ink.  The Hero Arts die sentiment was cut out three times from navy card, layered together then added to a strip of white card with a stamped birthday sentiment.  The strip was backed with navy card and added across the center of the card.

Back soon with more makes.

Sylv xx
