Jakes Card

Hello there! How are you this morning? I hope you are ok. I had a lovely time yesterday with my mum - we went to the hobbycraft and stitches show at Manchester Event City. We had fun - looked at stalls, bought some goodies and did a workshop. My mum did the tonic workshop and I did a stained glass workshop and made a suncatcher. I will have to look up the stuff I used because I really did enjoy it.

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made for my sister in laws man - I made this using a technique from Tim Holtz Creative chemistry 103 called gesso fresco that involves distress crayons.

I used a few different stencils in this but the main one was from clarity. The stamp is by Tim Holtz.

Here's a close up of the stamp - I love it and think its perfect for male cards.

I would like to enter this into sirstampalotchallengeseptember-one-for-boys

I hope you have a great day and enjoy whatever you do.

Big hugs
