Go Surfin'

I'm lucky enough to have lots of men in the family to make cards for, so I thought I'd take part in the CD Sunday challenge 'Mainly Men'.

I was browsing my new Docrafts Tulip and Friends CD and came across these images which I thought would be ideal. Then I remembered that somewhere I had a decoupage sheet from a goody bag and, when I found it, realised I had the image already there! So, the background paper and sentiment were printed from the CD but the three layer decoupage was from the pre-printed sheet. It's nice to know that, if I want to do the same decoupage again, I can just print it from the CD.

I generously inked the papers with distress inks and I like the effect that has given.

  2. I have this cd Marina and yes it's a good one for the men and not the usual fishing and cars, I do like the way you have inked the edges it isn't too heavy.

    I know a few men who would like this card so thank for the idea and for joining us again at CD Sunday.

  9. A super card, I've not got this CD but have seen several cards made with it lately, and think I might have to invest.
