Do you have a hard time with masculine cards? Well, I do too. Most of my stamps and images are feminine and just plain pretty. So when I saw a digital image of a mug of beer, I just couldn't resist. I actually have another reason that I had to have it…..I work at a beer company! Yes, this will definitely get a lot of use!
Not only did I want to use this frosty mug of beer on my card today, but I wanted to add just a little bit of "artsy" too.
I started with a kraft layer edged in Broken China Distress paint. That's topped with a black crimped layer. I ran the Broken China Distress paint over it and also painted a small section of the bottom left corner using my TCW Mini Chevron stencil.
I added a couple of layers of washi tape and wrapped some Charcoal Twinery twine around the layers.
I printed my digital image onto white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers, then I cut it out using a deckled rectangle die. While it was still in the die, I sponged some Tumbled Glass Distress ink around the edges using a large sponge dauber. I also sponged some Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink over the candle flame.
If you look closely, you can see some drops of Ranger Glossy Accents that I used to represent the condensation on the mug.
So what do you think? Does this work ok for a masculine card? Even if it's a little bit "artsy"?
Thanks so much for dropping in to check out my card today! I hope you enjoy your weekend!
