Vintage Masculine Card With Blockheads

Hi Dreamers!!
How about a masculine card today!!  I am still using the backgrounds I created with ink sprays and Crafters Workshop Templates.  See my tutorial here.  I used Blockheads Stamps for my project.  Here is my masculine card.


Stamps: All Blockheads
Victorian Invention-Two Wheeler
Vintage Light & Form-Australian Postage
Grunge It Up-small dashes
Crafters Workshop Template-Mini Harlequin

Walnut Ink Spray-Terra Cotta
Vintage Photo Distress Ink-Ranger
Black Dye Ink
Black Marker
Kraft Cardstock
Baker's Twine

I started out by creating the background.  Using Kraft Cardstock, place the template down on the CS.  Spray with the Walnut ink spray.  Cut to size.  Save any of the scrap pieces.  Distress the edges of all pieces with Vintage Photo ink.  Stamp the background with the Small dashes stamp from the Grunge It Upset. Cut a strip of diamonds from the scraps and glue to the front of the card.  Tear a piece from the scraps. Glue the torn piece to the card front.  Stamp  the Two Wheeler and Australian Postage image (Vintage Light & Form set) with black ink.  Add the twine.  Make small dots with black marker. 

Isn't this a fun card!!???  I think this will be a great card for a birthday or Thinking of You.

I would also like to enter this card in the Unruly Paper Arts Challenge for April #2 Inky backgrounds.

NOTE: The Blockheads Technique Challenge is up and running!! Don't forget to check it out.   The Technique this month is Magic Metal!!
Okay, I hope you are having a great day!  Love ya.
