Welcome back to Manly Monday. I hope all my state side friends are having a great Memorial Day Weekend. I have a few cards to share from crafters all over blogland and at the bottom a few of my own. Click on the blog name above the picture snippet to be directed to the masculine card. And hey, if you like what you see please become a follower of my blog. Thank you.
I also wanted to share with you a couple of links of masculine cards that I made that weren't Manly Monday cards.
I made today's Manly Monday card using a blueprint stamp by Tim Holtz. You can see other cards I created using this stamp over HERE, HERE and HERE.
I stamped it with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with Rangers platinum embossing powder on Ranger's watercolor cardstock. Then I colored the image in with Peerless watercolors and a water pen by Ranger. I die cut the image out using a Spellbinders die (Label 2, I think) and inked the inside of the die cut with distress ink and an ink blending tool.
The two compass dies are from Cricut Wall Decor and More cartridge. I cut them out in white and then inked them with distress ink. The strip of blue paper down the center is by Tim Holtz and the map paper is by K and Co. I inked the edges of that patterned paper as well.
Thanks for looking.
