I recently won the colour challenge over at
and was asked to be their Guest for this week challenge.
Of course I was so excited I said YES!
Don't you just love this Inspiration Photo?
Now a lot of us tend to steer away from male cards
but after seeing this photo -which just screamed
Rusty Old Car! I got out some supplies I thought
I would use but landed up with something totally
different and I must say
how pleased I was with how it finished.
I started my card with black card stock.
The DP I used here is from
Farm House Paper Co. - Fair Skies
This was used on the first background
and behind the tag.
I have backed that with black cs embossed
with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.
I distressed the edges on both the dp and the tag.
The truck is from Gina K Designs Country Roads.
The sentiment is also from GKD
which I purposely chose because when you travel
there are little moments
that make that trip a big lifetime memory.
Sentiments on the tag are from Stamp It.
The other stamps are from
Prima Marketing and Kaisercraft.
The truck was coloured with a variety of pencils
from Faber Castell and blended.
Inks used were Memento Tuxedo Black
Stormy Sky/Potters Clay
and Tim Holtz Peacock Feather.
Foam Squares for depth
Finishing it off with a couple of brads
and some Jute String.
Thanks for dropping in today
and be sure to pop over to the
Talented Designers Here
to see what Inspired them
for their Masculine cards.
Hope you get time to play with us this week.
