I made this very masculine card recently to congratulate my Son-in-Law on a special achievement and thought I would share it with you today.
I started with some Recollections black card stock for the blank. The background is a piece of paper from a Prima pad called Printery. I used a TCW stencil called Harlequin with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger and a Wendy Vecchi stencil called Checkmate and Walnut Stain Distress Ink to add a bit of interest. It was then distressed around the edge with my scissors.
The image is from a Tim Holtz stamp set called Time Travellers and was stamped on a scrap of card stock with Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger and then fussy cut. The clock is from a stamp set called Vintage by 7 Gypsies and the sentiment is a stamp from a set called Greeting Words by Stampabilities. Both these sets are new and I picked them up on a trip to the US - best of all they were both on sale.
I painted a strip of metal foil with Black Metal Paint by Deco Art and added it along with torn strips of corrugated cardboard, drywall tape and a couple of papers from my stash. Finally I added a key, button, washer and screw head from my stash of bits and pieces.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
