Manly Monday

Today marks week 20 that I've been requesting other bloggers to share a link to their manly card. It has become so successful. I'm so happy for the fabulous response to these posts and also to see that there are more manly digital images coming out for us to buy and use. I have found a few favorites within just this bunch of cards; the guy on the train, the teenager and the guy playing video games are great finds. There are a ton more out there that I don't even know about but would love to hear about. Give a shout out in the comments field of some digi companies that have good male images.

Please stop by the blogs listed below. There is some amazing talent out in Blog-Land. These ladies have all brought something different to the table. I'm sure you will be inspired and pinning away. Speaking of Pinterest, you may want to check out my Guy Cards Pinterest board too.

My card today features a Kenny K digital stamp that fits in perfect for some guys in our family. I'm going with a simple design and a sentiment that I can stamp a simple Happy Birthday on the inside. 

I printed this guy out on Strathmore watercolor paper and then colored him in using distress markers and a water pen. I love the look of the distress markers and they are so easy to use. For the foam on the beer I used Opal White Liquid Pearls.

For the rest of my card I used the following supplies: die cuts by Spellbinders, brad by Eyelet Outlet, embossing folder by Darice, sentiment sticker by Sticko/EK Success and distress ink on the second die cut and the background. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
