Templates, distress ink pads and embossing folders for a masculine card

I bought some masculine items from my local craft shop recently so used them for 
this weeks CCT Challenge Anything Goes. I'm also entering this into Country View Challenges.
I used the kaisercraft clock template and 'old paper' distress ink pad with blending foam. This creates a background in very little time, ink up the blending foam and tap gently over the template. Using 'walnut stain' distress ink pad, swirl over the edges of the card to highlight. Using a 'woodgrain' embossing folder on a piece of pearlescent green card I then used the inked blending foam to highlight the grain. 4 Creative Expressions 'screw effect' brads, 1 Creative Expressions 'brass clockface' suspended with a brad onto a brown card circle. Finished by wrapping hemp cord, sentiment stamped from an old See-d's collection and black gems.  


  1. Fantastic card Sue.The colours are perfect for a masculine card. Glad you have entered the challenges.... you don't know how good you are !Love your blog background too.
