Masculine Card for Stamping Vacation Challenge

Happy Friday!

I have a masculine card for you today. This is a Design Team card for the Stamping Vacation Challenge blog State your State Challenge. The theme this month is Michigan. This is an easy one for me because I live in Michigan. And, what says Michigan more that Cars?!

All the stamps are from Stampin' Up. I made background paper by stamping screws, rulers,etc... on gray CS. I over stamped that with the Sanded background stamp using metallic ink. The car is watercolored with inks and I also used some SU markers. CS: Bermuda Bay (SU), Dark Grey Brown (Bazzill) and Med grey. I added some silver metal brads for accents. And, here a couple detail photos.

And, here is a look at the inside. I can add any kind of sentiment to the inside next time I need a "Guy" card.

Challenges for the Hot Chevy:

Flourishes: Some kind of Hardware- metal brads

Woodware USA: Anything Goes

AI Factory: For the Boys

Lets Ink It Up: Anything goes - no digis

Hope everyone is having a great day. Enjoy your weekend too.
