Here's a card I finished yesterday, having inked the image a week ago, it's a birthday card for an old reprobate friend who at the age of 81 is planning to spend his weekend at a motorbike sprint and has a garage full of vintage bikes.
The image was a RAK from my blogging friend Debby, sorry I can't find the name of the stamping company. It's black embossed and I used Distress Inks sponged to give it a glow. The paper is My Mind's Eye - they have a few ranges with just the perfect stripes to go with everything. Maybe it's a hangover from my quilting, but I do love to use stripes, especially for a man's card:). The sentiment is Elusive Images, embossed in Copper rather than gold, brads are from my stash. And that's it. Nothing more to add to it because it's a man card :).
I based my card on a beautiful, simple sketch at Truly Scrumptious, that to me works perfectly for a masculine card. As you can see, I didn't take up their optional strawberry & cream theme :), and I'm also entering for Charizma Cardz "one for the boys" challenge.
Happy Birthday Mr B!
