First I had to decide what kind of masculine card to make..hmmm? birthday! Then decided on which stamp set...hmmm? The new Trip to Lancaster by MFP seemed to fit the bill. So...I started!
I used that stamp set and created a "scene" with the barn, the tree and the horse and buggy....stamped it all with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. The background was Kraft paper from GKD, Karen Foster dp, white cs from MFP. After I had the images all colored I decided Distress inks were the way to go...so used Stormy Sky and Tumbled glass for the sky and Pumice stone and Tea Dye for the road....did some sponging and some blending and the front was done!
The inside I embossed with a Cuttlebug birthday folder and then the sentiment (which was MFP Birthday mini stamp set) was cut out with Labels 7 and sponged with the Distress Ink Pumice Stone and Tea Dye. Had to add a LITTLE bling..masculine or not! :-)
