As it's Tuesday again it's time for another challenge over at 'Paper Take Weekly' and this week it's to make something for the boys... It can be a Fathers day card or simply just a card for a man or boy, or even a baby card.... I've been playing with my inks and stamps this week and this is what I did... I stamped my image on a plain sheet of card then started to colour all around it with my inks I stamped some extra images on there too, to create a back drop for the image.... I stamped a separate image, coloured it in and cut it out and then decoupaged it... I quiet like the result and it's something different for me. I ruffed all the edges and inked the cogs and corners and the jute mesh ribbon was originally bright pink lol!! I dyed it with several different colours of distress inks, quiet like the way it turned out.. I went around all the edges with wax gilt to give it a metal look, it does look a lot nicer in real life, the backing paper is more of a green colour...
