take it easy

good morning crafters
stopping by today to share one of my new lili of the valley stamps:
Oliver Cool, he's one chilled guy.
it's been a while since i have used my lili stamps. i needed some bloke cards for my stash. more male cards to follow over the next few post.

i will be really sad at the end of this month when lili of the valley stop selling their rubber stamps (hopefully a  temporary measure). although i do have some digi stamps i do prefer rubber stamps.

here's my card

he is one cool dude.
i have used all lotv stamps on this project: the image and sentiments (listed below) and again i have used my distress re-inkers to colour. my card has been kept very simple.

goodies used:
stamps - Oliver cool (rubber stamp) & sentiments  lili of the valley
papers/card - white 6x6" card base, fabriano5 water colour card,  designer paper: cartbella: well travelled
dies - spellbinder: square and rectangle

colouring medium:
ink - memento: espresso truffle, distress re-inkers, walnut stain distress pen.
skin - vintage photo.
glasses - pumice stone, sakura glitter pen
hair - pumice stone
jacket - antique linen, faded jeans, walnut stain
jeans - faded jeans
sneakers - old paper

all it leaves me to say now is:
join me again soon and thanks for stopping by, enjoy you day and craft happy. Ann

  1. Hi Ann

    A great card, I always struggle with masculine cards, but this one is great. Love the colours you have used.
