Hi all. Welcome back to Manly Monday. Sorry about last week. I've switched computers and wasn't able to work my Manly Monday magic like I did on my last machine. But I'm here today with some great new cards and excited ladies to have you take a look at them. Click on the name of the blog to be directed to the post and then come back to see my card at the bottom.
For my Manly card today I made a 5 1/4 square card, which is something I don't normally do. I used old patterned paper by Provo Craft for the background. I stamped the compass stamp by Tim Holtz with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with a gold embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. Then I colored in the image with distress markers and a water pen. After it dried I die cut it out with a Quickutz die and inked the inside with distress ink while the paper was still in the die. I adhered it to a Little Yellow Bicycle cork tag. The feathers in the card are wood veneers by Maya Road and the jute string is by Tim Holtz/Ranger.
The sentiment is by Gina Marie in her Birthday Words stamp set. You can find all her stamps and lots of great deals at wholesalecraftingsupplies.com.
Thanks for looking.
