A masculine card

This card is based on Sketch n stash 63:

The idea of Sketch n stash is to use new or neglected stash - well, the lighthouse stamp is a new Kanban one, coloured with copics. The impressabilities sea scape has been rather neglected - I used it when I first bought it, but it has been boxed away for quite some time. I embossed some white card with it, running it through the cuttlebug, an then swiped it with stazon ultramarine on the debossed side. The image was cut with a scalloped nestie and edged with stormy sky DI and stazon ultramarine.

As it will be Father's Day in the UK next Sunday, it's inevitable that there are a lot of challenges around atm asking for a masculine card. Unfortunately, my dad died over seven years ago so I no longer make Father's Day cards and never seem to get commissioned for any. So my card is a 'general' masculine one, but it would also be suitable for Father's Day - which will be good to have if someone asks for one at the last minute. So it's for the following:

Bows n berries 7: masculine
Daisy doodles 35: masculine card
Woodware USA 30: masculine cards
Ladybug 31: it's all about the males
Freshly brewed 49: it's a guy thing

Fun at fairy knoll: Father's day
Fussy & fancy: card for a man or boy
Mami doodles 38: card for a boy or a man
Sew many challenges 56: Father's day - or any male project
