FM60 The Difference Between Men & Boys is the Price of their Toys

Holly's challenge today over at the Friday Mashup is to create a Father's Day card with the given sketch.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project for " That special Man in your life ".
  2. Or Make a project with the " Sketch ".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Masculine card using the above Sketch ".

I decided to try something different... I used an image only available in My Digital Studio to create a hybrid card.  This set reminds me of my uncle, who used to restore Model A's and T's.  I even got to drive one!  :D

I also used the Mother of Pearl technique on the clock face.  This one's for my dad.

Stamps: Timeless (MDS), Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Really Rust, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Autumn Meadows DSP, Newsprint DSP; Ink: Really Rust, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Frost White shimmer paint, Hemp twine, Eyelet, Aquapainter, Circle punches, Word Window punch, Designer Label punch, Sponge, Sewing machine, Thread, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is SUCH a cool card Heidi. It caught my eye as soon as you posted it! I love everything about it...the images, the colors, the twine, the stitching...all combine for an awesome look!

This is an awesome masculine card, Heidi. I love all the elements and the way you've coloured the car! I must say, your use of the twine is the reason I added it to mine also. Thanks for the inspiration.

FABulous card for a man! Love the mix of patterned papers with the distressing and your combination of images is perfect!

I am soooo going to have to get this MDS download now! (I had to giggle at the post title, because it applies to us girls, too. Crayola crayons when we were little; SU markers/pads/inks/watercolor crayons now.)
