Seaworthy for Masculine cards

Here's another blokey card for you - I seem to be on a distressed theme with my cards at the moment, so the design for this one came easily to mind.  It uses the "Seaworthy" set, which has 3 image stamps - a sailboat, a motor cruiser and a surfing dude, with a great quote as well.

The card base is Kraft, stamped with the "Sanded" Background in Soft Suede ink.  The next layer is Soft Suede, and has been crumpled up, edge distressed with the Cutter Kit, inked direct to paper from the Soft Suede pad, and the Spiral Punch used on the bottom edge.  I've stamped the sail boat image using Stazon Black ink onto Confetti Cream cardstock, and added some colour using the blender pen and inkpad puddle method.  The quote is stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a separate panel of Confetti Cream.  To finish I added a couple of snips of ribbon, stapled to the side - a piece of Polka Dot Soft Suede ribbon and a piece of twill tape.

There's not much time left to get your orders in for this week's "Deal of the Week" - Certainly Celery 5/8" ribbon, Bashful Blue double stitched 1" ribbon, and selected coloured rhinestone packs (see the next post down for full details)  Call or email ASAP to place your order!
