Spots and Stripes

Today I am sharing a masculine card which I have made for my 'spares box'.
The latest challenge over at Less is More is ONE LAYER: Spots and Stripes

I started by removing the rubber stamp from the wooden block and using my Misti,
I stamped the imaged 3 times moving the card along as I did so.
I then coloured each one with Promarkers, adding in the spots or the stripes.
Lastly I added the sentiment, then partially de-bossed a border around the ties.

The products I have used are:-
Sirius Hobby Wood Mounted Stamp - FF121
Sentiment Stamp - Free with a Craft Magazine

Challenges entered:-
Less is More - One Layer: Spots and Stripes
Stampavie and More - For a Boy/Man
Open Minded Crafting Fun - Mighty Men In May {boys, men, manly, masculine}
Rubber Dance - Rule of Three
Addicted to Stamps - Make Your Mark

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Wow! The perfect spare parts for the challenge, Janice! It's a great card with fun colors! I have not been as good about using the spare parts as I hoped this year, but I have been keeping up with using old stuff from my stash - at least one things is being accomplished! I like that you free-handed the stripes and dots on those ties! Great fun! hugs, de
