I have had a great time making this card. There are so many challenges out there at the moment to create a male card, which is a challenge in itself and something that I do not do often except for Father’s Day or Dad’s Birthday.
I really only have one male stamp and it is the retired SU Motorcycle image and that is because my Dad loves bikes.
So with this one stamp I was on the hunt for different colour schemes and a sketch to fit my look.
The sketch is from Seems a Little Sketchy.
I found my colour inspirations in the Spice Cake DSP which is the current Summer Mini and I have used Soft Suede, More Mustard, River Rock and Very Vanilla.
I stamped the bike in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock and I then used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the image again with Versamark so that I could emboss with clear embossing powder.
I used a dauber to sponge some More Mustard Ink around the edges of the Very Vanilla card stock and then used the Colour Spritzer Tool to create Soft Suede ink spots on the cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Perfect Words Hostess stamp set which is stamped on Very Vanilla Card stock in Soft Suede and punched out using the Modern Label punch. I then trimmed the ends and sponged some More Mustard ink on the edges. I layered the Very Vanilla sentiment on a punched out Modern Label which is in More Mustard cardstock.
The River Rock strip was ripped and added a much loved and often forgotten Vintage Brad to finish off.
