Meet today's card.
I haven't made a 'grunge' type card for quite awhile so today was the day.
I enjoy challenging myself to walk away from the flower images that I so love and try to create a masculine card. This is what I came up with.
I was inspired by a great stencil I just picked up at Scrapfest too and wanted to use it.
I began by stenciling half my card front using Distress ink. Next, I placed the bike images into my Misti, inked with Archival ink, stamped twice to get a dark black silhouette image and clear heat embossed. I love the feel of motion these great stamps from Flonz have.
Next, I used the Graffiti stamp and the same colour of Distress ink to stamp around the images. I thought it all worked well together.
I stamped the birthday sentiment and now I will have a great card on hand for one of my masculine friends that loves to bike.
Adding my card to these challenges:
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES
Little Red Wagon- BOY BIRTHDAY
Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES
The Male Room- MANY LEGS
Watercooler Wed.- MASCULINE ANYTHING GOES
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Have a great week ahead.
