And in case the masculine theme wasn't enough to inhibit my mojo, I also tried out some new glossy stamping card. OMG, it was so hard to colour. The alcohol ink refused to blend at all, and my Stazon smudged too. I'll definitely not be using that card again.
To encourage my mojo to resurface, I used a sweet little Sugar Nellie image from Funky Kits called Aviator. I couldn't resist this cute little critter when I saw him used on a card by the lovely Lisa (Wishcraft). She coloured her version a lot better than I did, but I'm going to blame a small part of that on the glossy card.
This card's for my FIL's birthday (which is today!) so "Many Happy Returns" to Peter.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure he actually likes planes.
Or hedgehogs, (according to hubby).
But apart than that, I'm sure he'll appreciate a handmade card. :0)
(it's not my fault that men don't appreciate pink and girlie, because that's far more my style!!!)
