A Whole Month of Men - JFF

A new month over at JFF and the theme is "Men" this week it is also "Black and White" well! we sure did have the white stuff this morning in my part of the country. The Diamond, me and Tilly had a lovely walk around our local beauty spot and I couldn't resit sharing the photos with you. The rest of the day has been devoted to hobbies so I cut out 4 bears, cooked rock buns and an apple crumble, and then got down to the challenge. I made a card as it is soon to be my Dads birthday. I inked through sequin waste (I love this effect) direct onto the card. The tag is run through the big shot with a text emboss and black soot DI swiped. A smaller tag is rubbed with black ink and then stamped in moonlight white, the centre is a card covered in an old book page and gessoed hen stamped. The car is stamped in moonlight white onto black card and coloured with a white gel pen this is slightly raided on the card. I added the black Happy Birthday ribbon and the word Dad. Thanks for stopping by and keep warm. Hugs Sandra XXX

Super Card Sandra. Love the tyre track on the background and all the texture. Looks like you have all had a great time outdoors. Tilly looks like she is saying "no more photos I want to go and sit by the fire"! So cute!
Take care,
Florence xx

Great texture on your tag, and a lovely tag for this week's challenge but Tilly steals the show. What a lovely photograph, I guess she loves to pose for you.
Thanks for joining us at JFF. Hugs, Neet xx

Beautiful tag-love the textured background.

We have the same snow as you have and now there is an inch of ice underneath it so it will mean a crafting day for me.

Love the photos
