The Happy Wanderer

Good morning.   I'm here today with a card that I've made for this week's Less Is More Challenge.  It's a one layer card with a 'Masculine' theme.
I've used two stamps and a sentiment from the Hiking set which I've had for many years by the Stampman. I stamped the images and sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx and then coloured the boots and rucksack with Dovecraft Chalks and some soft artist pastels.  I stamped the grass at the base of the card using an Inkylicious stamp and Impress Olive Green Ink.  I then used a blending tool around the edge to give more depth and to draw the eye in.  I used Distress Stormy Sky ink to gently colour around the sentiment to give a sky effect, although this doesn't show too well in the photograph.  I've left lots of white space in the center of the card to give a CAS look.

I'm also entering this card into the latest 'The Male Room' challenge.  Their theme is to make a male card based on a song title.  The song that I've based my card on is:

 'The Happy Wanderer' ....... My knapsack on my back.

I think this song title sums up my card, given that it has walking boots, a rucksack and a fitting sentiment on it.  I remember singing this song at school many, many moons ago! :)
