Another Male Card.....

I thought that I would share with you today another card with retiring products. And for those of you that struggle with male cards, it may give you some inspiration as well.

You can check out the updated Last Chance List here.

Now this card is a CASE from the wonderfully talented Teneale Williams. You can see her card here. If you haven't seen her work before please check out her blog. I promise you won't be dissapointed.

Here's my card -

And the matching inside as well -

To make the tree multi coloured I used the sponge daubers. I use a different dauber for each colour. After dabbing it onto the ink pad, I then dabbed randomly over the stamp. I did that with each colour then "huffed" onto the stamp before stamping it onto the cardstock. Clear as mud I know! LOL If you have any questions or would like to book a workshop to see this technique in action please email me.

Check back tomorrow for some scrapbook pages we made in my friends (hi Ali!) workshop a little while back using my favourite retiring colour.
