Voyage Across The Oceans

Evening Crafters ! Today I have a male card to share with you, rather simple but effective I think. As I've mentioned before I struggle with male cards, there are fewer embellishments that are suitable and that seems to throw me coz I want to add flowers and ribbon and bling to fill up the spaces, lol.
Anyhow here it is:

 
I decided to use the resources in the 'My Craft Studio' program to help me out with the subject. I found a small image of the ship and enlarged it to fit my card and then a line drawing of an old map which I coloured with my promarkers, I coloured the sails on the ship, printed out an image of an anchor and then glossy accented it. The sentiment is from a Waltzingmouse stamp set. A few mats and layers, cut my banner and voila.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you a football card for a little boy so see you then,
 
Enjoy your evening,
Lorraine

You have done such wonderful job of this male card! I must admit I shy away from making them unless I really have to.
