The Crafty Secret's gals are creating masculine themed cards for this month's challenge. I decided to use the, Car Classic's set. I stamped the Route 66 image 3 times, in black, red, and olive green. I cut it apart and reassembled it. I used Crackle accents and set it aside to dry. The tiny car was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol. I had this silver disc thingy in my stash FOREVAH and decided to finally put it to good use. I die cut the image with a circle Spellbinder's die, inked the edges in brown and applied crackle accents to it as well.
The "Note to Self" card is by 7Gypsies and I cut the center out with my rectangular Spellbinder's die. The edges were inked. I then cut out a piece of corrugated cardboard with a larger rectangular die, painted it with cream pain, and inked the edges in a dark brown. I assembled the pieces using foam dots here and there for added dimension! I love lumpy and bumpy! ; ) Since ribbon would be out of the question for man's card, I used some dark brown twine and wrapped it around the center image several times.
Love creating little "shadow" boxes to create depth! And since glitter would be another No No......crackle accents was my substitute! ; )
I love how it gives it an instant aged feel! Super cool stuff!
Be sure to pop on over to the other ladies' blogs for more "Manly" inspiration! ; )
Have a wonderful day!!!!
