By the sea

   The theme for this week's challenge at Creative Corner is 'Just for men' and I imagined them messing about with boats.
   I matted and layered paper from The English Paper Company's All Aboard paper pad onto black card and then white. Using off cuts from other papers in the pad I attached three strips across the lower half of the card and added a black peel off sentiment to the centre of the lowest strip.
   The main image is from Stamps Away Pilkington Country Scenes set 2 of stamps. After colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out using a Spellbinders large deckled rectangle die. Before attaching it to the card I outlined the edges using a black Promarker pen.

   I would like to enter this into the follwoing challenges:
   Dragons Lair Designs - one for the guys
   4 Crafty Chicks - masculine
   Addicted To Stamps And More - anything goes
   Crafting With Friends - anything goes
   Through The Purple Haze - use a die and/or punch
