Two for the men!

  Good evening Lovelies, there's no let up in the weather so far , it's been raining all day today it's now windy too! However not as bad as a lot of places!
So tonight I've made two male cards for two challenges my first I'm entering into http://craftymesschallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/ and http://ladybugcrafts.blogspot.co.uk/ and the second is also for craftymess! The theme is a Country! Ladybug is monochromatic!
Both cards are on 6x6 craft card base, my first card I have used cream card and aged mahogany DI, the stamps are from Creative Expressions the background I used a script stamp and postcard then embossed and inked to create lots of texture, the rosette is by Tim Holtz!
My second card I used the map background from Indigoblu in chipped sapphire DI the inked edges, the topper is Portabello road stamps which I masked and stamped with crackle background also Indigoblu, I coloured with Spectrum noirs, I have to say my colouring in is not great! Thank you for visiting xxx

Hi Zoe First can I say sorry I haven't been around, One due to bad health and my little one being unwell and secondly my dear lovely neighbour passed away. I am catching up on blogs.

I love both of the cards, The first one is stunning and really makes you want to feel it, Love the colour combo and the images, Great design, The second card is fabulous, love all the London icons, They look fabulous on the backing card and i love the bottom layer FABULOUS xxx

So pleased you have your pop out comment box...x

Your cards are stunning Zoe and both are perfect for our challenge.
I love the Vintage feel to the Paris card as compared to the modern feel to the English one.
Well thought out...fabulous.
