Card: A challenge

This is my personal challenge card.  Was very definitely inspired by the Here come the boys   Blog.   But also, I was determined to use of the the Michael Powell stamps that I have and make it work for me.  The reason being that these are such detailed stamps, I have to say they have overwhelmed me.

But, with distress markers and determination, I made this one work.  At least I hope so!  And this care will work in my male category.


Kaszazz:  Card stock, Tag
Tim Holtz:  Distress Markers
India Ink
Whimsy Design:  Label dies, label stamp
Anchor charm
