A Masculine Card!
Yay! It's raining again! OK, I'm not really happy about it but I'm trying the whole reverse psychology thing. If we all say we love it, maybe it will go away. At least for a while. Well, a girl can dream, can't she? :)
Anywho, the close-up on top is a part of a MASCULINE birthday card that I made for this week's Be Inspired masculine card challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog. My DBF asked me to make a card for one of his friends. So, I painted 2 chipboard stars with platinum acrylic paint, then I stamped it randomly with some black ink and didn't like it. So I painted it again with more platinum paint and covered most of the black. Then I put a pretty thick layer of crackle paint, let it dry and I like how the bit of black ink comes through the crackle and the platinum.
Here's the whole card:
Neither picture came out great due to the lack of sun, (not that I'm complaining about the lack of sun...), but I think the 2nd one is most close to its actual color.
I used the houndstooth embossing folder on black Basic Grey paper then sanded it. I used one of my border embossing folders for the first time on the craft strips.
I still have to make a father's day card for my dad because I sold the one I had made to someone who liked it. Ugh! Another manly card to do.
Thanks for stopping by!
