Man at Work

Good morning from a cold, wet and miserable North East England.
Can I start by saying thank you for all the lovely comments that have been left for me, and also welcome to those who have become followers. After looking at the work you all produce I feel honoured that you take an interest in my cards.

So today's card is a complete change from me. My version of distressed, well just a little bit. I also set part of the background on an angle, killed me not to have it straight, and it is a man's card. I only realised this morning that I missed the CES 'No girls allowed' challenge.... thought it closed today.. sheesh.

The image 'Manatwork' is from Just Inklined, cut using Spellbinders long classic rectangles large and scalloped. Tim Holtz Cordinations for mounts. Paper, twine, button, and anchor from my stash. Sentiment from Digital Delights (blank with my words added) and Cardcandy altered to black.

I coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers no pencil this time.

The inside is finnished to match the front.

I am entering Joanna Sheens 'It's a Man's World' challenge, Allsorts Challenge 'Week 149 Colour Bingo' (green, stripes and blue), and Simon Says Stamp 'Favourite tool' which has to be spellbinders.

Thanks for looking
