Hi, Karate!

Well it's a long time since I've posted more than one card in a week, but had this one ready to go and as LOTV have an offer on at the moment (3 for 2 on boys/mens stamps and art pads) I thought I'd share this one with you.  I've ordered 6 more mens stamps today but this is one I've had for a while.  I have an older brother who's a black belt in one of the martial arts (don't ask me which one lol) I thought this was well suited for his birthday this year. It's a really fun stamp to colour and I'm really pleased with the results.

Recipe :
Backing Card : Craft Outlet Spalding
DP's : My Minds Eye Boy Crazy
Image : LOTV Karate coloured with Promarkers trimmed with corner punch and backed with Spellbinders Lacey Squares.
Stars : Cut from punches
Card Candi
Sentiments : Whimsy Stamps Sentiment Collection - Celebration Mini Tickets Cut with Whimsy Stamps Mini Ticket Die
