Masculine 2


This is the first card that I have made for
Less Is More challenge that I have really liked and wouldn't you know I can't get a decent picture of it. This
is a photo and its not good but the scan was even worse.  Its a lot deeper blue in real life. This is one of a set of Artemio stamps that I got yesterday at Harrogate Papercraft Show, also got the nestabilty set too. We had a great day and came home with all sorts of new stuff ( and empty purses too ! ) I was very careful doing this card as distress inks and clean spaces can be a bit of risky job !  After I had inked the nestabilty shape I had to have a clean up of my work space before I went any further and then I went and got a dirty mark from my cutter, luckily it did come off with a soft pencil rubber and the cutter has been cleaned up as well.
haven't had time to get round to looking at any other entries yet, don't know how Chrissie and Mandi manage to comment on everyones as it is very time consuming but as I love getting comments I do try to comment on as many others as I can.
