Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 12

Hi, this is a card for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge Number 12, For the Boys.

I do not make many cards that are not floral and feminine, so this was a true challenge for me. Using one of my Waltzingmouse sets that was suitable, the Ocean Bound set, and a spellbinders die set, so that my card could be very simple and not fussy, masculine, hopefully. I took inspiration from Claire and the Waltzingmouse Blog for the splatted sea stamp and a favourite Spellbinders die set was used.

Stamped using Marine Blue & Summer Sky inks with a kraft card contrast mount. My first choice with the Anchor.

Then tried out other sentiments from the set, for a "Bon Voyage" card

Final photograph is of a trio of cards all in the same style and colourways, my two previous cards and a third one with the sentiment "Anchors Away --- Sailor Boy" My thoughts were for another Bon Voyage travelling card.

Hope that you enjoyed looking at my designs, thank you for visiting

Yesterday we had eleven buzzards in our top field, have not seen so many together before.
