Vintage Masculine

     I did finish a card after church today.  I needed a card for my Brother-in-laws birthday next week, so i decided to make it manly looking. I used 2 different Digital Tuesday stamps today.  These were the 2 freebies given yesterday (Saturday).  I used chipboard and crackle paint for the embellishments and colored the digital images with my copic markers. The ribbon is from offray and i used Vintage Photo distressing ink all over everything.


Top Tip Tuesday-#48 Masculine
Tip: I made my own gear stamps for this card and it was very easy to do.  I have the gears (Tim Holtz) sizzix die and i diecut a piece of mounting foam with it to create the stamp. I then added it to a clear block to mount it and it was ready to use. Easy Peasy!
