It's A Man's World at W2SB

Our Badge!!!Time for another challenge at W2SB & I'd love to see your cards in our gallery this month.  You have until June 26 to enter & I know you can use the prize--check it out!  The quote that came to mind for our manly theme is from Doris Rowland: "The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys."  
My hubby is a certified "car nut" who loves cars old & new. He'd have a collection for sure if he won the lottery--LOL! I bought this Art Gone Wild stamp many years ago & wanted the car to be as close as possible to his favorite car color--champagne beige.  I inked the Spellbinder Reverse Wonky Rectangle die cut with Encore Metallic Champagne & embossed it with a clear, matte ep. Then I stamped the car with StazOn black & used a black Copic to darken some of the areas.  I really wanted to use the champagne ink for my sentiment, so I couldn't just print the quote or a saying.  Finally decided on embossing my very old Hero Arts letters on black cardstock & trimming them out.  Tiny black nailheads are used in the wheel centers & luckily I had this narrow suede trim which worked to add texture & ground the image.  Please check out the wonderful work of my teammates at W2SB.  I'm entering Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday.  Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  3. What a great stamp! I love the wonky die cut, it adds drama to your card with the vintage car. The rough finish is perfect for the car card. Make sure if he wins the lottery you get a little so you can get craft supplies and stamps!
