Give us a clue

I bought this Penny Black stamp a while ago, but this is the first time I've used it - think it will be one of those that really comes in handy.

This is for a male recipient, so nothing flowery - thought black and white with a touch of red would be good with the crossword image. This is for Penny Black's Saturday challenge 155: one for the guys.

I've used the sketch for Sweet Sunday 121:

The papers are very old ones - think they are DCWV and/or Dovecraft.

This is also for:

Just add ink 72: just add some colouring in
Nadia's challenge 8: black and white and 1 colour
Stamp insanity 63: keeping it clean and simple
Card cupids: animals
Dream valley 9: male themed
Sentimental Sundays 59: masculine card
Bows n berries 7: masculine
Cupcake 146: boy, oh boy, oh boy ...
Incy wincy 98: masculine
Craft us crazy 10: masculine colours/theme
Wags n whiskers 56: one for the boys
Fussy & fancy: card for a man or boy
Sew many challenges 56: any male project
Crazy 4 challenges 91: masculine card
My Sheri 61: Father's day - masculine cards
Freshly brewed 49: it's a guy thing
Papertake: dads & lads
Created by hand: circles and dots
Delightful: anything goes
Deep ocean challenge 1: anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy: make it free and easy
Top tip Tuesday 38: open challenge
