Less is More - Masculine


Just realised that this photo is a little wonky! Whoops!
I can assure you that the card itself isn't!

Over at Less is More this week the theme challenge is Masculine
this is my Masculine card.

I used the 'waste' from a Nestie cut out as a template to create the scalloped circular 'sky' background using distress ink


I then stamped the trees


and the mouse stamp, which I coloured with my Copics


finally adding the birthday wishes sentiment 
again stamped directly onto the card

Thats a great effect to use a scalloped nestie waste to sponge through and your shading in the sky is very realistic. Love it x
