Manly Monday Frigate

Welcome back to this week's edition of Manly Monday. I hope you will take a moment and check out the cards by other crafters and leave them some love. There's only a couple today but they are fabulous. Click on the blog title above the clip of their card to be directed to the masculine card. And also if you like what you see here I would love for you to become a follower of my blog. Thank you.

My card today features a large Dreamweaver Stencil called Frigate. I spread Dreamweaver Stencils white embossing paste over the stencil and set aside to let dry. I then placed the stencil back over the embossed area and brought in color with distress inks and an ink blending tool. I masked off the areas where I didn't want that particular color with Post It notes. Then to get the smaller areas of color in the image I used Inkssentials Cut N Dry pen nibs by Ranger with darker distress ink.

The rest of my card has patterned paper by Rusty Pickle. Ribbon by May Arts and sentiment sticker by Three Bugs in a Rug. The fancy compass is a die cut from the Cricut cartridge Wall Decor and More. It was a freebie cut of the week on Cricut Craft Room that I was able to take advantage of.
