Today I wish to share a card with you, having fun with distress inks...I created a card that I know from time to time us crafty people have some trouble making male cards, so I wanted to share another with you.
I took Hero Arts, watercolour paper and distress inks, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Broken China and Antique Linen. Taking the Classic Fabric Background stamp and adding Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge and Broken China over the stamp, spritzing with water and stamping directly onto the paper, heat setting it with my heat gun. I felt that it was quite strong in colour and so to tone it down, I took the Antique Linen and applied over the top of the paper, I trimmed around the stamped image and sewed around the out side. Next, taking white card stock, trimming to size and stamping a sentiment from the Made with Love stamp set, adhering to the watercolour paper. Lastly, adding some jute to the top of the white card stock and an olive green strip of card stock to the base of the white card stock, then adhering this to a trimmed white card.
I hope that this card gives you some ideas for making great male cards.
So before I leave you today, I wanted to add some sharing here:
