The Harbour



This is a card I've made for a friends birthday. Male card can be so tricky but this set of stamps by Hobby Art are ideal.

As usual I used a square card blank. I cut a square of smooth white card which I used to stamp on. I started by stamping the stone wall, followed by the boat, waves post and the the bird. I used Memento ink pad as I'm planning to colour in the image with ProMarkers.



I then stamped the first row of houses. I stamped all the houses again on Post-it-notes. I cut these houses out and used the shapes to mask off the first row of houses so I could stamp the smaller row of houses behind.



I coloured in the completed image with ProMarkers. I mounted the image onto black, krafts and brown card. To finish I added a birthday greeting.
