Billie and Monika Challenge #4 A Manly Card "Enjoy"

Hallo my Blogland friends...this month is our fourth challenge betwen me and my friend Billie in USA, this is my time (again) with the theme, I choose Manly Card.

This time I really want to use this lovely Stamplorations Stamp again and I think this stamp fit for man too. I remember my Aunty in Cirebon (Indonesia) and her hubby sometimes took water from this Spring Well/Draw Well. But sadly my Aunty and her Hubby is already passed away :(

I choose this stencil, and this stamp set to make my card

Here is the finished card:

The Sentiment Die is from PTI.

Please visit Billie`s Post HERE, she made a cuteee manly card with Tie and Coffee Cup..so sweet...you have to see it :)

Challenges for my card are:

 I have seen at Simon Says Monday Challenge they have a theme Home Sweet HomeI took my old stamp set I have from Hero Arts and started then to colored it with Akashiya SAI Watercolor Marker. I then took a white paper and sponged the cloud using the lovely Cloud Template from my lovely friend Billie A. Then I drew by my seld the grass using 2 different green Peerless Transparent Watercolor. I really like the coloring the roof ;)

I also took my brick stencil and sponged Tea Dye Distress Ink on the house wall. The Sentiment HOME is from Taylored Expressions and SWEET sentiment is old Hero Arts clear stamp.
