Anything Goes on the Papertake Weekly ,,,,, :-)


Hope you all have a lovely day and if you are in London on the street and waving your flags I hope the rain stays away today :-)

We have a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ,,,

ANYTHING GOES

with the added option of ‘for a man’

I used this fabulous new ‘DIY Legend’ stamp from the Wild Rose Studio. Don’t you wish your handyman looked like this ,,, !! :-) I made this for my hubby for Father’s day ,, it is a bit of a joke as a handyman he definitely isn’t, his DIY disasters are legendary ,, lol :-)




I stamped the image with black Archival ink, cut him out and popped him onto plain white card with pop dots. I stamped the image with red pigment ink and embossed with red sparkle EP. I had masked the dots and just added some black gems in their place. The papers are from a ‘Man About Town’ pack and I used some plain red SU card for layering. I used a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch, some black American Tag twine, a button and a wrench charm from my drawer and some metallic dew drops to finish :-)



We are sponsored by LOTV so a fab £10 voucher to the store on offer this week :-)

Oh he is gorgeous - but it looks like he is just posing with those tools and would be better suited with a dry martini shaken and not stirred in his hands - LOL! Wonderful card for your husband for father's day. Super element and paper choices!
