Kanban Male Mannekin Jasper
Well here I am actually posting something right here and now. I have been crafting but having to schedule them for when the challenges go live. Well at least when they do go live you will all think I am super woman knocking out projects every 5 mins lol. I don't mind being your superhero at all LOL.
Anyway here it another vintage project. The image is a stamp from the collection Jasper by Kanban. Sometimes its nice to use a stamp for a change as you get to choose the outline colour. I used Coredinations for the matting and the papers are from Raspberry Road. They had to be distressed which actually DEstressed me LOL. I love it as it doesn't matter when the edges are uneven lol.I coloured the image using just my prisma pencils and kept the tones sepia. I used scattered straw distress ink pad on a crackle effect rubber stamp over all the layers on this project as well as distressing the edges with the same ink. I used sentiments from Card making Downloads. One is definition of Friend and the other is definition of Thank you.I used brads and chain to link them together and finished them off using charms from WOC. I then finished it off with vine ribbon from my stash. I did not cover this one with flowers so it could be used for a man (well one that appreciates a handmade card... just need to find one thats all LOL)
The inside as usual compliments the front. Sorry for all the pics but just trying to capture all angles so the butterfly charm can be seen properly. Thats my apology for your possible boredom or you losing the will to live scrolling throught them all LOL.
Thanks for dropping by and hope you call again soon.
