Cards for Men "Anything Goes"

Hi folks,

The Cards for Men challenge this week is "Anything Goes".

I've embossed onto Core-dinations Whitewash cardstock using a Crafts Too embossing folder "Swirly Frames". The image is made using the Harbour Scene-It stamp set from Hobby Arts, stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with Letraset Aquamarkers. I've covered the gul with glossy accents to add extra texture.

I would also like to enter this into the August challenge at By the Cute and Girly where the theme is "The Sea". (Thanks Lisa!).

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx

I have candy HERE

A gorgeous card! I love the seagull and it goes so well with that frame and the whitewash paper. That stamp set is so useful, isn't it?

What a fabulous masculine card Clare! The scene is coloured so beautifully and love the glossy accents on the seagull. And such a perfect embossing folder to go with the scene.
