Final Week of Men/Boys at MMM

Make My Monday again!  Aww...I feel quite sad I have really enjoyed creating my masculine cards.

MEN and / or BOYS ONLY

"TIME" (dont forget has to be in a masculine theme - we dont want to see flowers and butterflies etc lol:) 

  I would like to thank Caz who has brought us this fab month of masculine themes - it's been a welcome change and I have enjoyed making all my cards.  Don't forget we have also had the privilege of being sponsored again by Marianne Design who is giving away an amazing prize (see picture below) to this month's overall winner.

My card is 8x8 and consists inked and stamped backgrounds.  Distress inks used include Walnut Stain, Rusty Hinge and Aged Tea Dye.  Overstamping and stencilling has been done using a mixture of Sepia and Walnut Stain.  My embossed panel has been inked prior to running through the Cuttlebug before having more distress inks applied to the top of the embossing.

Stamps used are primarily from Indigo Blu and Kaiserkraft along with PaperArtsy.  Do you like the embossed Kaisercraft clocks in the centre of my big clock - these have been embossed and then cracked.  The large clock die has been cut in silver metal sheet which has been aged with Black and Brown Stazons.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Fashionable Stamping Challenges - "Embossing"
My card has both dry embossing and triple embossing.

Crafts & Me - "Embossing"

Anything Goes Challenge - "Tick Tock Goes the Clock or Steampunk"

Sparkles Forum Challenges - "Men Only"

Please visit the MMM blog to join me and the rest of the design team on this last week of Masculine challenges.  There will be a brand new monthly theme next week and its the complete opposite to this last one!
