Mens Cards

Old Timer

Hi All

Mens cards are so notoriously difficult to do, so here are a couple of options for you.  Recently we have spent a lot of time around car race tracks, especially Oulton Park, so I thought it was fitting to put a car out there - not the kind of car we have been watching on the race track but a car of the more quieter and slower bygone Classical era.

Using beautiful cardstock and the contrast with the dull craftcard, then the image is watercoloured in sepia.  The metalic edge and swirly dots are created with flitterglu and gilding flakes.

This card is made using Cumbria Colour Card and the plain colours from Paper Mill Direct, I love the contrast of the buff and the pale turquoise and teal.

The centre piece backgrounds is made from sticky sparkle acetate which you can see over the watches and timer, but then alcohol inks are pounced on to the surface with a little blending solution and the magic happens.

I hope you like them.
