Just Add Ink #106

Hey Everyone

About a month ago I said I was going to try and make a monthly “man card” to have a few up my sleeve.  Also I wanted to try and test myself as I don’t make alot of them – mainly because I can’t tizz them up by adding ribbon or pearls!  The sketch at Just Add Ink this week appealed to me for a man card as I was able to add my favourite masculine stamp – Sail Away – to the design.

Here’s my card:

Because of the whole nautical scene I wanted to do something different with the hemp twine.  I you-tubed how to tie a sailors knot to make it look more authentic. Here’s a close up of my knots (I’m pretty proud of myself that I was able to tie them!)

  1. Really delightful and creative card. Love your sailor knots! Your tone-on-tone work is georgous. Thanks for the inspiration

  2. You’ve totally blown this challenge out of the park, Narelle! Love what you’ve done with the sketch, and well should you be proud of those fabulous knots! Great masculine card – I love it.

  3. I’m so glad you’re making regular ‘bloke’ cards – it means I have somewhere to come for inspiration!

    Love this one Narelle (but then I love all your stuff). Those knots authenticate your card perfectly!
