      Okay girls, I'm sorry I missed out on the last couple of postings, but we should be on schedule from now on.
      So for today it is MASCULINE ONLY and with Father's day in mind, I created this card.

      father600.jpg

      And here's how I created it.

      1-14.jpg

      I selected my papers

      2-14.jpg

      I added some Gesso to my top and bottom paper, using a credit card to scrape it on. Took my heat gun to dry it. (This was totally inspired by Heidi her technique. She did a video on the Prima blog last week. If you haven't seen it… you should!!!) here's the link to it: http://prima.typepad.com/prima/2012/06/video-day-with-heidi-kelley-.html

      3-14.jpg

      I added some spray ink over the Gesso and heat dry it.

      4-14.jpg

      I also sprayed my pocket watch. I used Dylussions Spray ink.

      5-12.jpg

      I cut some gauze bandage, twice as wide as my card is,and inked randomly.

      6-13.jpg

      I randomly sprayed my base card and heat dry it.

      7-13.jpg

      I glued down my top and bottom paper.

      8-12.jpg

      Added my light colored paper strip

      9-12.jpg

      I distressed the edges of this piece of paper

      10-9.jpg

      sprayed it with water and let it sit for a minute

      11-12.jpg

      Then I pinched the paper and heat dry it. After it was dry I inked up the edges.

      12-12.jpg

      I sprayed a piece of cardstock, cause I wanted to mat my sentiment.

      13-12.jpg

      and this is how it looks.

      14-11.jpg

      I added my gauze bandage. Did 2 layers of it, and on top of that, I glued my pinched paper strip.
      Used my hot glue gun for these steps.

      15-10.jpg

      I glued my inked pocket watch to a light color of PP, using glossy accents, and cut it out.

      16-10.jpg

      Glued my pocket watch and sentiment down like this.

      17-8.jpg

      I added some hand stitching to the top and bottom of my card and I also stitched the key, to my sentiment. I did a loose stitch, cause I want it to dangle.

      18-7.jpg

      Lastly I added some liquid pearls and some of those cute little TH paperclips.

      And this is what my finished Father's day card looks like.

      ***************************************************************************************

      What I would like to see on your Masculine card or tag is:

      * use some gauze bandage
      * use a sticker sentiment
      * use some >HAND< stitching

      Can't wait to see your cards ladies.

                  Stuning Paulien!!! Yo make it look so easy!!!

                  "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                              Here is my Father's Day card. There was a piece of ledger PP in the Writing Desk Add-On kit that matched the Bo Bunny sticker beautifully, so I used some Broken China Distress Stain on the white cardstock of the card and it came together really easily. There are hand-stitched X's in the coers of the card, and I used the gauze bandage as the string for my banner. I saw a card like this on a blog (sorry, I don't remember which one) and loved the way it opened up to reveal the banner.

                                Great card, Peggy! Love the gears, the gesso adds interest to the top and love the layer of misted gauze behind the key.
