A Masculine Blogger's Challenge

Happy Friday Friends! We have a masculine challenge today for this week's Blogger's Challenge, and with Father's Day just around the corner, it couldn't have come at a better time. I started off with Jen Del Muro's June Sketch For You To Try and I pulled out lots of older supplies for this one. First of all, the main image is from a 2001 Stampin' Up set called Wonderful Woodcuts! It's an old set, but a great one! I colored it up with Copic Markers (B0000, B00, B12, B14, C1, E000, E01, E11, E33, R29, R59, YG13, YG63, Y32, and Y35.) It is mounted onto a layer of Night of Navy and then I tore the edges of a Creamy Caramel layer and stamped the speckles from the Itty Bitty Backgrounds set (another SU oldie, but goodie). The polka dotted panel is from Memory box and YES, that is a square of MAGIC MESH!!! Do you remember Magic Mesh? I told you that I pulled out a lot older supplies...lol! I did some machine sewing around the main layer and then I added a button and some Blueberry Divine Twine from The Cat's Pajamas. Thanks so much for visiting with me today. If you'd like to play along with this week's Blogger's Challenge, just click here. I'll be back soon with some more stamping projects. Until then...Toodles! :D

What a great card!! Kinda makes me sad that I no longer own that set....it looks spectacular colored in with Copics! Great layout. This may be an "oldie, but a goodie" stamp, but you've done an amazing job with it....guess the looks of this stamp really is timeless.
