I find it so hard to make cards for men, so I thought I would challenge myself to use my alcohol inks that have been laying in a drawer for ages virtually unused. I used 3 colours and the blending solution on acetate and was quite pleased with how it turned out. I also made a bookmark for my Dad with the left over acetate. The sentiment stamp is by Autumn leaves, stamped and embossed in green. I used a couple of nesties, then added it to the card with foam pads. The gorgeous butterfly is by K&Co. and the pearls are Prima. The lace and ric rac are from stash. I very rarely make a card without a cutesy image, so it was fun, but challenging to try a different style.
I'm going to enter this card into Pile It On Challenge 14 - Say it with words. I was one of the people who suggested this challenge, so I really wanted to enter it.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
