Darkroom Door - Surfboards

Hello... Flying visit today as I'm having one of those days!

This is another of my new Darkroom Door stamps... I wanted to leave most of it uncoloured and just add a pop of colour to the surfboards, but I'm not sure if it really worked - maybe I should have used different colours.

Items Used
Stamp - Surfboards - Darkroom Door
Stamped using Archival Ink in Sepia
Colouring - copics
Papers - NEW Prima Forever Young - MCH
Memory Box Simple Banner die - MCH (out of stock)
Twine (ordinary garden twine bought in big rolls on Ebay!)
Blue fibres & starfish charm from my stash
Sentiment - Stampin' Up

Still lots more to do, but hopefully I'll be around later for a bit of a commenting catch up... and I've got a girlie creation for tomorrow (for those of you who don't like the boring male stuff!).

**Enter my candy here**

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

A brilliant guy card, Lisa! Love the string and subtle bunting!

Cool! I like the DP with the lines with this image - makes me think of waves! And I think it was really clever of you to do this card in red colors, I would have played it safe with blue color tones, but the red works amazingly great, and is part of what makes this card so special!

Louise said...

Love it! It looks very 'earthy' ... and that's a compliment!! x
