God Prepares Us ~ The Male Version

Several weeks ago, I made a special beach card using one of Angie Blom's Unity Stamp Company Patience Girl with a wonderful sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy, The Future.  Everyone loved that card combination and immediately I got a request for a 'guy' version.  I'm even hoping that maybe Angie will come out with a great guy walking on the beach stamp or digi one day!  But until then...  I dug around my stash of Unity Stamps and came up with this combination - which I hope you will love as much as I did. Plus I wanted to enter Angie's Facebook Background challenge this month! 

I've combined Unity Stamps Sunset Promise with Angie Blom's Digital P. S. I Love You, Guy.

 This one was a little tricky to combine - and there are lots of ways to do this - so as you read, don't feel this is the only way.... it's just the way I selected.

I started by masking out the girl sitting on the beach of Sunset Promise, then stamped the sunset.  Then I scanned this part as a jpg so that I could place the digital of the guy in front of the sunset and size him appropriately.  

I printed this on Neenah 110# cardstock and used Copic markers which are listed below.  When completed, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine ink.  

I used a 6" denim colored card base for this card.  I die cut the image and a black mat using the Pink & Main Stitched Rounded Square Die and secured each layer to the card base.  To finish the card, I added black twine around the top fold and a cross charm.
