A Challenge & A Layout

First up is the latest challenge from The Stampman, Make it for a Man. I used some old map scrapbook paper & a piece of kraft card cut into a tag. Each piece was washed with a mix of Cappuccino & Gold Perfect Pearls & then stamped. Some of the stamping was immediately smudged to give a worn apperance. Walnut Stain distress ink was used to age the pieces further. Stamps used, Tim Holtz & Artistic Stamper Clocks.

Next is a Layout all about my favourite place of the moment, Pinterest!

Papers used: Studio Calico - Bunting.
American Crafts - ModaBella - Preppy
American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Spring Sweet Strawberry
Main background - American Crafts - reverse of Everyday - Long time no see.
Red Butterfly stamped onto Cosmo Cricket - Nutmeg - clove
Blue Butterfly stamped on Basic Grey - June Bug Cabana
TH small Butterfly stamped onto Studio Calico Bunting
Spiro Circle cut from Basic Grey - June Bug - Picket Fence
Ticket - Sei - En Route
Large Butterfly stamp - ISC
Happiness Stamp -Catslife Press
Title - Tim Holtz - Alpha die -Typeset

Wow, fabulous card, Paula. Love the colours and the images are perfect for a man.

Love your LO too, not too much to distract from the central images.
