Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. So glad you dropped in for a visit and I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Sharing another 'Man' card with you today. This one was made for my oldest grandson's 20th Birthday. Can't believe both my grandson's are pretty well all grown up now. Even my granddaughter will become a teenager next birthday. Where have all the years gone!!!??
Anyway, here is my card.
Pretty grungy hey!!! That's how I like my masculine cards ... lots of distressing and lots of grunge!!
Kaisercraft papers and some corrugated cardboard make up the base and I added some crackle for texture.
I'm in the process of tidying up my stash and discovered some metal embellies that I totally forgot I had, so a lot of them ended up on this card along with some wooden cogs. Also added some small pieces of gutter guard at the sides.
Of course, I couldn't leave them clean and neat so I used some paints and gesso to mess them up.
Love that sparkplug!!!
Love that sparkplug!!!
I also added some seed beads. Thought they might look a bit like ball bearings. Not sure that that worked but I do like them there anyway.
The inside with the sentiment. I got a bit enthusiastic and wrote a personal message before I took the photographs so I had to block that out. That's what happens early in the morning when your brain is still asleep. LOL!!
Of course, when everything was glued down and dry, I had to spread some random bits of gesso around!!
So, there you have it!! Another of my grungy male cards done!! Happy to say, it was well received. I am absolutely stoked that my grandies, and my kids too, save the cards I make for them. A lot of my friends do as well so my efforts are not wasted!! Love it!!
Hope the weather is nice wherever you are. It's a bit cold and wet in Adelaide at the moment but I am so glad we didn't get the storms that they had on the east coast. They were absolutely horrendous and I sincerely hope it's all over now and people can get their lives back together.
My thoughts and prayers go to everyone in that part of our country. I have some close friends and some scrappy friends who live up that way but, luckily, they all came through it reasonably well.
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Take care, stay safe and God Bless.
