Male theme at PanPastel UK

Good morning, we've got a new challenge starting at PanPastetl UK and this week we'd like to see projects with a male theme. As always our lucky winner will receive a PanPastel starter set from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store so don't miss out :-). I don't have many male themed stamps, and love to create sea/sky effects so this was a great excuse for me to create a nautical card. 

I began by created the background using a Pronty Alphabet Mask. I laid down some turquoise PanPastel and lightly brushed some Raw Umber PanPastel through it, I overstamped with some text. Next I created the little seascape using PanPastels in various shades of blue and turquoise. I cut a porthole shaped frame and added some dots of cosmic shimmer glue.
The Embellie was made using Maimeri Iridescent medium coloured with PanPastels in shades of brown, buttered onto one of my favourite stamps from the Stampman, I inked the stamp up with gold stazon first and  left it for a couple of days to dry


To finish off i've added a nautical knot using some string and an old button

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: makes for me
Get Inky: boys/men
Milkcoffee: Male inspired
Top Tip Tuesday: masculine

Well as usual on Sunday morning there is a ginormous pile of ironing calling my name so i'd better scoot and get it done so I can grab some time in my craft room. Have a lovely day and thanks for popping by
