A masculine make .....


Hi there!

Hope you are all keeping well. 

I'm sharing a creation that I made this week for an elderly gentleman.  I found a lovely tutorial on the Lavinia facebook page and although quite a simple make, I thought "that's perfect!" so I had a go!  I've used my Daniel Smith watercolours to paint the background in and the lovely Lavinia stamp Pheasant on a Fence.  The grasses are also a recent stamp released by Lavinia too called Orchard Grass. The world is full of beauty are words by Lavinia and the happy birthday is an old stamp from my stash. I darkened the edges with distress oxide black ink. A simple make but such a striking image, that's all it needs!

Thanks for stopping by,

Leanne xxxxx


  1. A beautiful stamp made into a beautiful card. The touches of grey around the edge make it just perfect for a masculine card xx

  2. Such wonderful male card, Leanne! Love so much the effect of the light watercolour behind the pheasant on the fence, all the scene is a dream and the words are really perfect!!
    Hope that there are lots of men in the world that could see the beauty of nature and agree with this fab quote :)

  3. A gorgeous card, Leanne! I love your background, it's perfect for that lovely stamp. Just had a look at your fine art site too, and all I can say is "Wow!" Superb paintings!

  4. Fab watercolouring Leanne - and a perfect 'man' card!

  5. A stunning card, Leanne! Love the colours.
