Reverse of Yesterdays

Yesterday I shared a card that I originally intended on using an Old Olive card base for but changed my mind (when I accidentally stuck my designer paper on the wrong one). So instead of letting the card go to waste, I created this one:


I used Gus from Bugaboo Stamps for a masculine card. Just goes to show that some colours and papers can be used for men and women as yesterdays was using JJ.


If I was to use that paper again, I'd probably ink the edges of the designer paper in the same distress ink as the image to take away the harsh lines.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
All Things Unity ~ Masculine
Dream Valley ~ Father's Day
Just Some Lines ~ Spots and Dots
Secret Crafter ~ Household Object (Clock)
Little Claire's ~ Cards for Men
Bloggers Challenge ~ It's Manly Baby!
Glitter Geeks ~ Men/Fathers Day
Inspire Me Fridays ~ Anything Goes
Mami Doodles ~ For a Boy/Man
Poodle Parlour ~ Anything Goes
Wags n Whiskers ~ Masculine
Craft Us Crazy ~ Masculine
Crafty Sentimets ~ Fathers Day
Dutch Dare ~ For the Boys
Shelly's Images ~ Masculine

Love this card and the DSP you used. I was wondering if you could share what printer and ink you use. When I use my HP or Lexmark printers & their ink I get smudges when I used a blender pen and chalks or the Stampin Up Stamp N write markers while coloring in the digital stamps. Any suggestions?
