Just Add Ink - You Rock

21 August 2015

The challenge over at Just Add Ink this week is Just Add Males. Ugh, masculine cards often have me in a tizz. They're generally not to be pretty and pink, with lace and ribbon! However, I knew exactly what I wanted to create this week and I'm quite happy with my masculine creation. 

With Father's Day just around the corner, I wanted to acknowledge my amazing, fabulous husband....who seriously does ROCK! He is also pretty 'sharp' on the guitar too....pardon the pun!

I used the guitar and sentiment from the 'Skating By' stamp set.

I'm not sure if you can tell from the above photo, but the timber frame has been made with a square cut out and the layer inset into it....I hope I'm making sense!?

Want some more masculine inspiration? Oh that sounds really bad doesn't it?!! Sorry, I'm not sending you off to a site filled with Brad Pitt, George Clooney or Channing Tatum! Even better....masculine cards created by the amazingly talented Design Team over at Just Add Ink.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I could not love this card more than I do. This is beautifully designed and artistically crafted, Louise. AND...and....and...this is a stamp set that has never made its way on to my "want" list (insert deflated sound) until now. This is a stunning card from a silly set. Did I mention I love it?

  2. Wow! Go Louise! You are so smart. I would never have thought to use this stamp set like this. How talented are you? I'm in awe.

  3. Your attention to detail is just stunning Lou. Love the muted weathered feel you got using the woodgrain and watercolour. It's fabulous (even if it's not pink!). xxx

  4. You did indeed rock this challenge, Lou. Such a fun card. The veneer back works so well with that beautifully coloured guitar. You know I had no need for that set, right? ;-)
    Hope you have a fun weekend.

  5. Wow, Louise - this is stunning! Your wood frame is the perfect setting for your fabulous guitar - you rock indeed! And I too have had a second look at this stamp set now. xo

  6. Well now I have to go back and look at that set again! Love your card and you've framed it beautifully with the woodgrain. It definitely rocks - even if there is no pink and tizz lol. x

  7. "You rock" is spot on for this fab creation Lou. Love the clean lines and soft woodgrain...cleverly done you! xx
