Bloggers Challenge - Manly Cards

Happy Friday! Just in time for Father's Day - this weeks Bloggers Challenge is to create a card for the man in your life. I created today's card with my DH in mind. He's always wanted a motorcycle, but this is as close as he's gonna get. I'll have the boys give this to him with his new Fly Rod for Father's Day.

All images are from the Artistic Outpost Route 66 plate. To create the background I used the Depth of Field Technique with Going Grey, Bermuda Bay and Black inks. Kinda gives it a fun Retro look! The motorcyle is stamped in Black, and I used my SAMJ to stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay. Don't forget you can save 10% on all items at Artistic Outpost when you use code LS-10off - this includes Inks too!

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Route 66
Ink - Black Archival, Going Grey, Bermuda Bay
Card Stock - White, Black, Bermuda Bay

Great card and perfect for a manly card. Love the color scheme too.

Ahhh come on Lisa let him get a bike. When my hubby turned 50 I told him he could buy a Harley and he just loved that!

Very nice!! That's as close as my hubby's gonna get to a real one too. He is way too accident prone for a motorcycle.
