Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Male Cards

***Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT Card***

******************************************

This week, it's Wendy's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:

'Male Cards'

Perfect, with Father's Day just around the corner in the UK.

I've used a Whipper Snapper stamp called 'Doggy Pile' on my card, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I used three Cuttlebug folders ('Swiss Dots', 'Happy Birthday'& 'Diamond Plate') on plain papers from the BasicGrey 'Max and Whiskers' pad (available here at the Secret Crafter)...sanding over the raised areas to reveal the white core. I distressed the edges of everything with 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink (available here at the Secret Crafter)


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
