Welcome! Today I have a masculine birthday card to share with you. The lighthouse image above is from JustRite Stampers new Oceanside Oval Medallion Labels set, while the map background is their Vintage Map Collage Background Stamp. The birthday sentiment is from Spring Words. I hand-trimmed the lighthouse layer so that I could use the Nested Oval Medallion Labels die to create a mat layer with blue cardstock. Of course, I couldn't resist popping up the lighthouse on foam tape too.
These are the Copic markers that I used to color the image, most of which can be found here. (Click to Enlarge.)
Papers are from October Afternoon's Sasparilla line (Rustler). The rope twine is from my Stampin' Up stash--not sure if they still sell it or not. I found instructions for how to tie a Double Carrick Bend knot HERE. (Okay, I don't know if it's a sailing knot, but it is a pretty cool looking knot!) You can't really see it from the photograph, but I added glitter in the light portion of the lighthouse. For the sentiment, I used a Spellbinders Labels Eleven die Template to cut and to mask from airbrushing Copic BG23 and B32 onto the label. Whew--that was a lot of information for one card!
