Guy card

This is another new stamp set. I need a guy set, and since Balmy Breezes is retired, so this is my "guy set".

I water colored the image and distressed all the edges. I like how it turned out, just sometimes I wish guys liked "bling", it seems a little dull.
ETA (for Tara): The background on this card is done using background stamps. The card is kraft card stock I stamped the paisley BF with blue bayou and then I stamped over the paisley layer with the linen BG with Close to Cocoa. The Close to Cocoa layer is stamped with Flannel with blue bayou ink.

Stamps: Winds of Grace, Paisley, Flannel, Linen, Riviting Inks: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Sahara Sand, Craft White, Timber Brown (Staz on) Paper: Kraft, Blue Bayou, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa Extras: Corner rounder, 1 1/4", 1/8", and 1/2" circle punches, paint brush, natural hemp, dimensionals

Fabulous card! Is that DSP or a background stamp? If it's a BF stamp, is it on textured paper? It looks so cool, I want to touch it! Great job! TFS.

GREAT guy card! Guy cards are so hard..."they" really need to rack their brains in the stamping industry more for guyish images.
