Some Men's Cards

I needed some men's cards, and decided to use the wonderful images in the Crafty Individual's People and Places 2 book. The background is distress ink swooshed on the craft mat, then sprayed with water, then the paper dabbed onto it (and some extra distress ink filled in the white bits after it was dried) - all ideas from Tim Holtz.
The die cuts are from nestabilities, and the word is made using a Dymo. The frame is glass (from the wonderful Tim Holtz), and held together using gold tape also from Ranger.

Using the CI pictures again, and this time the CI frame, covered with Terra texture paint, stamped when still wet, dried, then coloured with a mix of Fired Brick and Viva Gold metallic paint. The background is coloured with Vintage Photo, and stamped with the same colour, the circle (nestabilities) is also edged with fired brick. The Imagine stamp is in Fired Brick.


  1. I love them both Trish. The details on the 'Imagine' frame are beautiful - you are going to enjoy your new colours!Love the background too.
    On the other card, I like the unusual nestabilities shape and the subtle but different colours as well as the frame in the middle.
    Great cards
    Love Jen

  2. Great Masculine cards! I love all the background stamping and then the inking.

  3. Stunning, love the colors!
