Nature at Cardz 4 Guys

Our new challenge it Cardz 4 Guyz this week is Nature. So we'd love to see your cards with anything wild and natural on them - and remember, they need to be suitable for a man or a boy.

My card uses a silhouette stamp from an old Artylicious set. The company is no longer trading, although last time I used an image from the set, somebody commented that they thought Indigo Blu now sold the same designs. I made the background by scribbling blue and green watercolour pencils onto watercolour paper and then washing all over with a waterbrush.

The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions stamp set - the set is actually snowdrop themed but this stamp from it is getting a lot of use elsewhere! And the corrugated kraft came from the packaging of some bottles of olive oil.

I would like to share this with:
