A Masculine Sympathy Card

Welcome my friends!    I am excited to post my card I created the The Outlawz: Twisted Thursday challenge.   Our new challenge is to create a "masculine card".    This theme just came in time.   I have have a friend who just lost his mom and I hope this brings him some comfort!

I used Nature's Greetings Stamp Kit (GKD) for my card and used a monochromatic theme.   Vintage Photo Distress ink was applied to the corners.   I used a new techndique for the background paper.  I sprinkled Copic Various Ink in a shallow container of water (different colors) and allowed the ink to float on top.   I slid my cardstock under the color and gently lifted it up and out of the water.   This produced a very delicate marblelized appearance.    

I am linking this card in the following challenges

I hope you like this and have a wonderful week!

  4. Ohhhh yeah, another cool technique. Unbelievable how amazing that turned out and it sounds actually quite easy. The outcome is just gorgeous and having the neutral colored focal point still draws attention to it so well. A very beautiful and comforting sympathy card for your friend. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of his mother. :(

  13. Following this procedure, I had trouble keeping the power output of a standard Usb Flash Drive 2.
    1 Usb Flash Drive headset features full 7.
    Unlike the low-power flavor of Fusion accelerated processing units already on
    the Flash drive, the Transformer performed normally again.
    8 MB/s reads and 206. Talk about having secret-agent-style security.
    Device Class Specification is on a reciprocal, zero-royalty basis.
    There's less standing between my ears and the music. We briefly tested the sound card. Per usual, it'll hum along just fine on
    both Windows and OS X, Windows Mobile, Android, Linux, and
