Endeavour Morse Inspired

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's the start of a new challenge over at The Male Room challenge blog where the bi-weekly challenge is all about making cards for the men in our lives. Here is my DT project ...

Each challenge, of course, has a different theme. For challenge #78 we are looking for makes Inspired By Television. Lots of scope there!

I went for a make inspired by my favourite 'whodunnit' Morse, taken out of its Oxford setting and transplanted into a nautical theme mainly due to his first name being Endeavour, Nelson's flagship.

What did I take from it ...
You got the dots and dashes for morse code plus some letters and numbers - Morse in his younger years was a code breaker during WWII.
The musical score is for his love of anything Classic especially Wagner.
The lighthouse stand for him being kind of beacon, he can't be corrupted and hasn't got much time for bent cops.
The compass, well ... he follows his inner compass solving crimes.

Apart from that, the card came together using stenciling, stamping, masking and some colouring using watercolour and alcohol markers.

Fancy creating your own Television Inspired make, pop over to The Male Room for more inspiration and to link up your masculine makes.

That's it from me for today
Have a lovely day!

  1. Clever idea with the Inspector Morse idea and the word Endeavour and such a fabulous card. Love how you've used the mix of stamps too x

  2. Fabulous card Monika, love your 'tv' theme... my brain is tick now!!!!

  3. That's a really clever take on the challenge! Morse is one of my favourite programmes too, and I do like the way you've interpreted the name Endeavour! Great work. Deborah, xxx
