Masculine Monday - 48-2017

I love to make masculine cards and I played around with two different coloring techniques to make similar cards.

This card was done by stamping with Versafine on watercolor paper and then painting with a wet brush and Distress Ink in various colors.  I then brushed around the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I took a skewer and used the tip to add some white drops of acrylic paint for "snow". The image and sentiment are from a Unity KOM called Conspiracy of Love. I matted it on a scarp of plaid paper I had and matted it on a kraft card base.

I used the same image for this card, but stamped it with a dye ink and colored it with pencils.  I used Gamsol to blend the pencil and it really makes a difference.  I wanted to do a more night-time background.  I stamped the truck on a scrap piece of paper and held it over the truck while I used a blending tool to blend Distress Oxide ink around it.  I started with Fossilized Amber in front and out the window and put Faded Jeans everywhere else.  I then sprinkled water on it and patted it dry with a paper towel.  I then used Distress Spray in Picket White to spray over the image to look like snow.  I distressed the sentiment in the same way using mostly the yellow color.  I like the night effect and will practice more with it. - Dense
