Inky Antics!

I am always on the lookout for images that are appropriate for men. And since all the men in my life love to golf....I thought this was a perfect stamp! The image is from Inky Antics. I purchased it from Eclectic Paperie. I actually made this card for my hubby's boss for his birthday....yea no pressure there! He is the golf club champion at his country club. So the man reeeallly likes golf!
I paper pieced his shorts and decided with the bright colors I better leave his shirt white. I colored him in with my Copics. The paper is by Reminise. And notice, no ribbon! That was really hard for me.....so instead I added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Lizzy Ann Designs. I used an epoxy circle over it. Which by the way, have turned yellow with age. Yep, probably had these babies for about 7 or 8 years....which is why we all need to STOP hoarding those supplies! They DO expire!!! In my case the yellow worked out because it matched the paper! LOL!!

End result? Brian's boss loved the card! "Put one on the board.......YESSSSSS!"

When you hoard so long that you don't even LIKE the item anymore, now that's a problem. And my downfall. Oh well! Super cute image...I really need to buy some guy stamps too. I was just thinking about that again yesterday.
Seriously considering Gina K's guy set...

This is so cute - love his paper-pieced shorts. Great job making the DH's boss happy. :-) So I'm curious about those epoxy circles now - I've used them in scrapbooks, are they going to turn yellow over time? I'm a major hoarder too btw!
