Manly Monday Blueprints

Hi all and welcome back to Manly Monday. We are just trying to get everything back together from the weekend before the new school year starts tomorrow. I'm hoping this school year will be better than last year. Anyway I have some fabulous masculine cards for you to check out by 5 amazing designers. Have fun.

Today's Manly Monday card features a blueprint stamp by Tim Holtz. I stamped it onto watercolor paper by Strathmore and colored it in with distress ink and a water pen both by Ranger Industries. Then I matted the image with kraft cardstock by Oriental Trading Co and used a piece for the sentiment. The sentiment stamp is by Gina Marie's Birthday Words sentiment stamp set. You can find this stamp set and many more deals on crafting supplies at Be sure to tell her you saw her site from me. For the rest of the card, I used ink by Hero Arts and Stampin Up and cardstock is by Bazzill and Coredinations. 

Thanks for looking.
