With our men in mind...

Samples of Decoupaged ideas for Mens cards!

All of the samples on the board are made from 1 sheet of Die-cut decoupage (£1.15) . 

The sheet includes all 3 designs/themes -Golf, Fishing & relaxing!  Mens favourite hobbies!
I have added a couple of different Peel-off stickers, Sporty layering papers and cork to complete the masculine themes.

I have been loking forward to working with the AGED SPICE FRANTAGE!  So,  because JAPONICA has have had some new cardboard items in stock, I decided to make an "ARTY" notebook for a friend.

Note book & matching card/envelope
I have repeated the Magnolia print (a STAMPENDOUS STAMP- so gorgeous) on a separate piece of craft card to create a "pocket" inside for tickets, bits & pieces.  

Close-up of "Pocket" for bits n pieces inside notebook.
This is what I used:-
Stampendous -Camellia stamp, Versafine O Black inkpad, Coloured pencils (SAKURA for great blending/shading), Clear embossing inkpad, Heat-tool, FRANTAGE - Aged Spice, Aged Ivory, Pearlised Mica Fragments. Plain card notebook 15 x 15cms £1.99.

ALL of these items are availalble in JAPONICA.  There is a workshop coming up on 17th June for FRANTAGE effects!  (Workshop £12.50).
