Playing with sand

Hello to everyone. 
 I hope you are managing to keep warm and dry in this awful spell of weather we are having.  
My card share for today features a male themed card using a Stamp and DP from the Camden Town range from Crafter's Companion.

I have been exploring creating texture using alcohol markers with some of my recent cards and in this one I have used craft sand coloured with my Spectrum Noir Markers to create depth and extra texture.  This image brings back many happy memories, as we used to have a split screen camper van.  

List of materials used to make this card:

Crafter's Companion Camden Town Stamp
Neenah Solar White Card
Spectrum Noir Markers Used:
TN1-4, BG1-6, TB, IG1-3, EB1
Centura Pearl Card – Darks for mat and tag
Image and mat cut with Spellbinders Labels Die
Shaped A4 card base
Crafter's Companion Die'sire Sentimentals Stamp – Imagine.
Paper is Camden Town free CD-ROM with Crafter's Inspiration Magazine – Volume 3, printed onto Satin Finish Printer Paper
Crafter's Companion Die'sire Decorative Dies – Scalloped Tags
Collall Tacky Glue
Ribbon and button are from my stash.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.

Sending hugs to all from,
