New Daisy and Dandelion male stamps


Managed to get some of the lovely new Daisy and Dandelion male stamps for a bargain price on Ebay....I'm a bit lacking in inspiration [and stamps!!] for male cards and thought these might help inspire me.

So here is my first card made with them....and thought I'd enter it for a couple of challenges...the first being [strangely enough!] on the Daisy and Dandelion blog where the challenge is 'Be Creative'...hope this meets that challenge.

The second is Cupcake Craft Challenges where the challenge [aptly enough] is to make a card for a man...definately think it meets that one!

Image is watercoloured and the 2 paint pots have been decoupaged....the papers are Daisy and Dandelion and Clare Curd...there's a little bit of Basic Grey card...and the sentiment is also Daisy and Dandelion.

Really enjoyed making it....so maybe now I'll get more into making male cards.

Great fun this afternoon....bees have decided that we have such a lovely home.....they are making their home in our cavity wall....so the 'bee' man came to evict them......a lot of not happy bees.....a good excuse to stay safely indoors crafting.....that and the gale force winds that have appeared from nowhere....gardening can wait.
