More Masculine Cards

A couple of masculine cards to show you today in this post.

This first card is made with the Hero Arts "Going" stamp set.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (Bo Bunny)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Walnut Stain DI; HA Latte Chalk Ink; Desert Sand Dye Ink (CTMH)
Stamps: Hero Arts; My Favourite Things (Typewriter Alphatet)
Other: Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

Pretty straight forward, I stamped the bike in three different shades of brown, going from light to dark. I distressed some of the edges and used the tiny staples to add to the masculine feel.

In my second card I decided to go away from the typical brown and blue with which I am comfortable for a masculine card and used some terracotta colour.

Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: CTMH Autumn Terracotta Dye Ink; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts; Typewriter Alphabet (MFT)
Other: Corner Chomper

I first stamped the Hello Greeting with the Terrocotta ink on white cardstock and then overstamped that with the chair in black.  I matted that on black cardstock and finally added it to my card base.  The sentiment is made up from two different sets.  A fairly clean card.

I think something is wrong with my camera (or with me) because my photos are looking a tad blurry, so, my apologies.  I will fiddle with it a bit and see if I can fix it. I will be back shortly with another post for a different challenge.  Beautiful day here in Houston!

You are really knocking it out of the park with all these man cards, Brenda! I don't even know where to begin- Really like both of these- the vintage look of the motorcycles and that Terra Cotta color- yum!

Time to play catch up again! ;) I love the masculine theme you have going on here. The colours are perfect on both. I love the distressing on the first one and the simplicity of the second!
