Saturday = lazy day!

Hi there readers,

Morning all, the sun is shining and it's a lovely day, I hope yo have the same where you are

Today's make? .. an ATC ... got to play with my new stencils too!, so nice for a change. This is for a swap with my Isle of Skye trading card buddy where the theme is "MASCULINE"

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of white card cut to ATC size
  • Tim Holtz faux brick mini stencil through which I applied Distress Ink in tea dye
  • TCW cog stencil through which I applied Distress Ink in spiced marmalade
  • Carabelle number stencil through which I applied Distress Ink in vintage photo
  • Paper Artsy man (from their Ink & The Dog collection - Gentleman plate 2 - probably more than 10 yrs old) stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Kaisercraft border image (from their "Edges" set which is certainly at least two years old) stamped using Memento rich cocoa ink
  • I applied a layer of Crafters Companion spray and shine, to seal the water based inks

I'll be entering the above ATC for the following challenges:
  1. Pattie's Creations - challenge No. 135 - FOR THE BOYS
  2. StarStampz - June 8th challenge - MAKE IT FOR A MAN
  3. CRAFT Rocket - challenge No. 38 - FOR THE MEN/BOYS
  4. TGIF - challenge No. 112 - LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS
For those of you who usually swing by, to see what my make is for the Les Is More challenge ... I've not yet had my inspiration so I MAY be back later with a second post or it may be in tomorrow's blog post!

Have a great weekend

What a gorgeous ATC Kathy and I love the stencil work in the background with the brickwork and the numbers, and the silhouette gentleman goes beautifully. The weather here in West Somerset is warming up nicely so a good weekend to come. x
