TKJ #226

** edited : Top 3 at TKJ **

Hiya!  Here is a last minute card for The Kraft Journal by using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Today, I am using the stamp from Crafty Individuals Vintage Vehicle.  Before stamping the image,  the background is watercoloured in distress inks Faded Jeans and Antique Linen.

As for the base card, I mixed the embossing paste with TH Faded Jeans randomly as I didn't want it to be too blue on the kraft.  I also did some doodling along the edge to fill up the page!  The sentiment is heat embossed on a vellum!

I am also popping this into Pretty Pink Post blog hop, Simon Wednesday ChallengeMod Squad Challenge and CASology.



Thanks for taking your to drop by!

What a super masculine card Lai-Yoke and your doodled edge looks very effective and draws it all together.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

Love your card. I'm always on the lookout for masculine cards and this is terrific. I like the way that you used watercolors as an accent to lightly shade the background. It really adds that special something. Thank you for sharing.
