Country View Crafts #16

Hello to you all, I am so excited to tell you that I am now on the Design Team for Country View Crafts

 I am sharing with you today my very first sample.  This month the theme is 
"Only Men Allowed"

I started by sponging a piece of linen card with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink leaving out where the image was going, then inked through a stencil with Antique Linen Distress Ink for the teacup stains.

I then stamped my image with Black Versafine and painted them with Distress inks and went round the edge of my card with Black Soot Distress Ink

I used a die for the Dad, then mounted this onto some craft card. 

I am entering this into
4 Crafty Girls "Anything Goes"
Charisma Cardz "Fathers Day"
Cute Card Thursday "Blues and Hues"
Delightful Challenges "It's a Guy Thing"
Paper Shelter "Make it Manly"
Rhedd and Rosie "No Flowers"
Polka Doodles "Men on our Mind"
Pan Pastel "One for the Boys"
