Cool Guitars for My Man.

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
It's all about the Males this time round as Father's Day is 
just around the corner in Australia and 
my Hubby's Birthday next week.
Since he loves playing his guitar with his 'old' mates
this is what I chose.
I got out bright coloured Distress inks 
in Black Soot/Hickory Smoke/Carved Pumpkin
Fossilized Amber and Peacock Feather.
Simple inked the back background multiple times
from SU Timeless Textures stamps
then my guitars from Inspired by Stamping.
 Added a few 'picks'
You can't play a guitar very well without them!
Sentiments are from STAMPlorations 
Oh So Grateful and One Cool Chick
Added some washi tape to the top and bottom.
Cut this out from a stitched die and adhered to 
black card base.
The new challenge over at Crafting with Dragonflies
is asking for a 'Guy' card.
Pop over and see what the Designers made and join in.
You have 2 weeks so plenty of time to play.
There are a few others that have the same idea so 
will pop this card over to
Details Here
Retro Rubber Challenge is a new one I just found
and you need to use stamps that are more than a year old.
The main stamp set I used I know is more than 2 years old
as the Owner used to live in Australia but
moved back to America. My background stamp is
also older than a year and is 
SU Timeless Textures - now retired.
I went the top line left to right
using a stitched die, washi tape and going masculine.
Details for this challenge are Here


Hope you all have a great week end and
get to do the things you love doing
especially craft!
Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your comments.
