All in one - masculine

A friend needed a birthday AND graduation combo card for a friend; I've made more masculine cards in the last month than I've made in the last year. HA!

I have these papers from echo park that I just love (believe it or not, the paper pad was in my 'donate' stash, but I recently rediscovered them and have used them 3 times) - yea for using that stash!!

I used this weeks sketch at Splitcoaststampers, you can see it bright and early tomorrow morning or take a peek down below. Instead of the small focal point, I used a bit larger focal point and added sentiments from 4 different stamp sets, all embossed in Hero Arts clear embossing powder, I sponged on Mermaid Lagoon and Hickory Smoke distress inks. The 1 and 8 are actually glitter thickers - I sanded the tops but there was STILL glitter on there....oh goodness. But no fear, I used the Mermaid Lagoon distress stain and streaked the bottom, then applied the Hickory Smoke ink pad directly to the numbers; then one more swipe with Mermaid Lagoon, splattered on some Hero Arts Unicorn White and finished them off with glossy accents. Love how they look!

Some distressing on a couple layers and that's it. Thanks for stopping by; hope you'll join the fun over at Splitcoaststampers this week!
