Out of my Box!

This card is so far out of my box - it's almost funny. I was inspired to make this card by Michelle's blog. She often posts cards that she says are not her style - but I always love the results of the ones that are out of "her" box. Michelle also owns Stamper's Dream - an Ebay store where I buy my Amuse stamps and other things - the link is on the left side of my blog - check it out! So I needed more masculine stamps and this is one of the ones I chose. When I first stamped it, I was a little intimidated, but as I coloured (prisma pencils and gamsol) I started having a lot of fun with it. I'm pretty pleased with the way this one turned out - now I want to try and watercolour it!

In other news, I'm cleaning and re-organizing my stamping area - eeek! I was motivated by my friend Becky who suggested I turn my desk so it faces the kids play area and t.v. She's so smart!! Maybe I'll post the before and after pics later this week.

Beautiful card!! I've never tried gamsol - is it hard? I am not good at watercoloring at all! This card is gorgeous!!
