Traditional Mans Card


This tradional mans card I think works much better than the previous one but on my blog you get the warts and all.
The ship is Kazelkraft which I brought with the idea of using the bleach method to make the sails pop out but couldn't quite work them out so I just stamped in black and added colour using copics.
Couldn't work out if a portcullis should have several or a couple of dots together but I think I prefer it this way. I'm impress with my reef knot but otherwise a very plain card but then men don't like fancy or do they!

  7. Fabulous male card, love the colours but I can't see a portcullis as that is what come down outside a castle but your porthole is fab. Love the reef knot too.

  27. This is my favorite of the two, and I am impressed with the reef knot, don't know if I could remember how to do one now, what about a 'round turn and two half hitches' blast from the past.
