Designs by Ryn and Carabelle Studios

Hello blog friends,

I've been totally inspired by a lady called Hermine Koster lately, you can find her blog HERE. She used this lovely background stamp from Carabelle Studios on one of her cards and I just love it! I also added the pen nibs from a Tim Holtz set. Hermine also uses Bister a lot in her work and I really like the soft, natural colours and speckled effect that the Bister gives. As the Bister is so organic, I felt I wanted to add an image from nature as a focal point, and what better one to pick than the beautiful spiral shell from Designs by Ryn??

I really hope you like this masculine card, I don't often make cards for the men! Thank you for visiting and for all the kind comments I've received lately, you are all lovely! Xxxx
