{ Masculine Waves }

Stamp Sets: Winds of Grace, Happy Everything & Shore Thing (retired) Paper: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Close to Cocoa & Always Artichoke Ink: Close to Cocoa Accessories: Aged Copper Hodgepodge & Small Oval Punch

I love this set! It really caught my eye when I first saw it in the new catty. It is masculine yet soft and looked like it would be easy to use ... and it *is* all those things!

I've had this layout rolling around in my head and couldn't wait to get it down on paper. I wanted to use a torn piece of blue in the background to give the effect of waves. When I realized that my retired "Shore Thing" stamp set even had little waves, I was so excited! I think next time I will put the greeting up a little higher though. I really wanted to use some twill or twine on this card, but I was trying to keep it real simple so it would keep that masculine feel. Masculine cards are so difficult for me (and most stampers, I think), so I'm happy to have another one to add to my collection.
