Happy Birthday Monika

Monika shares my love of Indonesian food and making masculine cards! She blogs over at Creative With Monika and today is her birthday. She is celebrating with a month long challenge which you can find here  - she has showcased a selection of her cards and the challenge is to choose just one of them and CASE it. Naturally I chose one of her manly cards!

This is Monika's card:


And this is my interpretation of it. I used one of the new Crafters Companion texture folders to emboss the stonework,  roughly coating some of the raised areas with green ink before embossing, to give it a mossy effect.  The car image (apparently a Studebaker) is cut from a scrap left over from an old K&Co paper stack, as I didn't have a suitable stamp.


I'm delighted to share that this post has been featured on Manly Monday at Cre8ive Cindy! Why not pop over and take a look - there's a giveaway too!
