Quixotic Sketch & Stash

There was a really good un-fussy sketch over at Sketch & Stash this week which was just perfect to make "One for the Boys" for the challenge at Quixotic.
I used a new Personal Impressions stamp three times, cut out the shelf and all the bits on top of it and decoupaged it in layers.  Fiddly stuff - I can tell you!  I glazed the glass jars, mug and paint spills then added the Relax sentiment with my word processor.  The Best Wishes sentiment was made on my label maker with a bit of clip art for the birthday cake.  The blue paper is Papermania and I used my houndstooth stamp with blue ink onto red paper for the interim layer.  This card is for my BIL but I am going to use the image again for card for one of my cousins this week.

Wonderful card you have made for the challenge! I love that you have made the jars look like glass, and made it dimensional too! Great image for Father's Day too!

Hi Lesley

Your card is gorgeous.

I have this stamp and really like it .. .. but I must admit I have never gone to this much trouble with it. You have done a super job!

I shall never be satisfied with my "flat" version ever again. LOL!!

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx

Do I love your houndstooth stamp as much as you do? I think I need that PI stamp, based on your card. You are a bad influence! (Fab card again!) x
