One for the Men

This design is simple, clean and masculine.  I have used a vintage car for this card but other types of car, and different colour schemes would work as well.  The base card is brown textured card.  The background panel is a piece of paper that has been coloured with H2O's.  While still wet the paper is scrunched in to a ball, then  gently pulled and semi- straightened out. When dry the panel is gently rubbed all over with clear Versamark ink, then gold embossing powder is added.  The ink and the powder only catch the paper in certain places, so that when heated the final effect is a distressed, aged look.  The panel is matted on to gold mirror card and layered on to the base card.  The tag is created from a piece of white card that is coloured with Distress inks that have been blended together.  The tag is then stamped with various small images, in this case with a vintage theme, using a sepia ink.  The middle of the tag was masked off during stamping.  The mask is removed and a sentiment is then added in the space.  An eyelet is added and some ribbon threaded through.  The vintage car image is stamped onto white card with sepia ink.  It is then coloured with a brown glaze which also gives it shine and dimension.  When dry the car is cut out and attached to the card with a large foam pad.  The tag is attached in the same way.
