JAI #619 - Just Add Masculine

I'm playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge again this week. It was a case of an idea popping into my head that wouldn't leave me alone - I'm sure many of you know exactly how that goes, lol - so of course I gave in to it and headed off to my craft room. 

And here's my card. 

Isn't that background a-maz-ing? Love, love, love the depth you get on 3D embossing folders - this is a Tim Holtz one called Mechanics. I embossed a piece of silver foil card then added black soot distress paint and distress crayon to highlight all that wonderful texture. To me it looks just as real as the actual pieces of metal on there, which are the gauge frame and the 'screws' on the quote chip.

Materials used:

  • card - crumb cake, silver foil, real red (all Stampin' Up)
  • inks - black soot distress archival (Tim Holtz), crumb cake (SU)
  • Tim Holtz products - Mechanics 3D embossing folder, gauge dials, gauge frame, quote chip, Postale die set, memoirs ephemera pack, mini paper dolls, hardware heads, black soot distress paint, black soot distress crayon
  • other - Big Shot, sponge daubers, craft foam, Dimensionals, corner rounder punch, Copic markers E31, E55

Of course it's always handy to have masculine cards on hand and there's plenty more ideas to inspire you over on the Just Add Ink blog

Thanks for stopping by.
