It's a Man Thing

Hello friends, we are warm and cosy inside - the same cannot be said for the weather outside - an Antarctic blast is expected this weekend and it is building up daily.....what better weather to stay inside and create!! My card today was created for a masculine birthday

The image from Hot off the Press 'Masculine Collage' has been stamped using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured using Memento Markers and an Aqua Pen.

The image has been hand-cut and layered onto a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One that has been cut/embossed, the die used as a stencil before removing the Die-cut, the inside being sponged using Delicata Golden Glitz and a Sponge Dauber.  The cog image has been stamped prior to die cutting.  The layered Die has then been attached to the pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment has been stamped using VersaFine Vintage Sepia.  Finishing off with random splatters of white and grey paint.
