Dies R Us Challenge ~ One for the Boys (masculine)

 Hello Blogging Friends!

Today is September 15th and that means it is time for a new challenge on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and our theme is One for the Boys (masculine).

Here is my card for this challenge:


Neenah Solar White paper
White card stock
Tumbled Glass distress oxide
Copic markers
Black ink

For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with White card stock.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and the Frantic Stamper Ocean Sunset Scene die and cut out the die.  I then took the water part out and using my blending brushes applied Mermaids Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Broken China and Bundled Sage onto the paper and spritzed it with water and then dried it with my heat tool.  I took the sky part out and blended Tumbled Glass and Broken China with my blending brushes onto the paper, spritzed it with water and then dried it with my heat tool.  I took Fossilized Amber distress ink to color the sun and around the sun.  I took the rope frame part and used my blending brushes to apply the Frayed Burlap and Antique Lined distress oxide to it.  I pieced it together and added it to the card base.  I took some more Neenah Solar White paper and the Frantic Stamper Rope Wreath and cut out 3 sailboats, I colored them with Copic markers and then I added them to the card. I took the sentiment and some Black ink and stamped that onto the sky.  I took my dauber and Tea Dye distress oxide and dabbed it onto the white card background.

Don't forget to check our Sister Store in Canada with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts.

I hope you will come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
