Another Male card


About time I had a distressed vintage card on my blog and I must say I really love how this one turned out. The stamps, clock die and mini gears are Tim Holtz of course. I stamped the truck using Memento Rich Cocoa onto kraft. I bought a white ink pad recently and used that to stamp the sentiment and I think it looks really effective. Lots of DI Vintage Photo, use of the TH distressing tool and some tearing too. The paper is Dovecraft Curiosity Corner and the wooden arrows are Studio Calico from Little Claire.

What I love the most about this card Marianne is that it's still fairly flat for posting. Such a lot of vintage inspired cards have an enormous amount of height - yours is perfect!! xx

This piece has come together beautifully Marianne! I love the newsprint background - for some reason that always adds a masculine feel. The elements of the gears and arrows are a really nice detail for this design and, you are right, the white ink choice for the sentiment is perfect! Thank you for sharing your great project & creativity with us!
