'Cards for Men'
I really enjoy making men's cards...and I love using Penny Black doggie stamps on them. This one is called 'Circus Act'...I love the one holding his ears up for the one on the top to sit on! lol
I coloured them with watercolour pencils, and then carefully cut them out...well, I didn't want to accidentally snip off a tail! I decided to make a side-step card, and used Kraft card for a more masculine feel. The papers I used are from the 'Offbeat' pad by BasicGrey, and I distressed the edges using inks and my distressing tool, before adding some faux stitching. The stars were cut using Nesties, and the little sentiment (in the centre of he largest star) is a stamp from a little Studio G set. I used my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet to cut the letters.
Here's a view showing the 'steps':
Don't forget to pay those lovely PBSC girls a visit for more inspiration :0)
