Male Card - Just Because

It's been a while since I have just made a card (or anything) just because and I thought why not.  I had the Crafty Individuals vintage car stamp when I subscribed to Craft Stamper as a gift and it had not seen any ink so it seemed like a good starting point.


The background has been inked with distress inks; Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint.  This was spritzed with water and then further stencilled (Tim Holtz mask) with Faded Jeans.  The criss-cross was stamped in Versa Brillance Starlight Black.


Kaisercraft Paper has then been layered (including the postcards and rosette).  Marianne Design Creatables (including the new car die LR0198) were cut from a "grainy" card and then further inked.  My letters were cut from Kaisercraft paper and then edged with white gel pen.


The main image was stamped into an inked background of Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint with white gel highlights. An old key was coloured with alcohol inks and then an old chain added .....


I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
