The focus is on something Masculine at Sentimental Sundays

Good morning everybody

It's time for a  Sentimental Sunday Challenge,  and today we want to see the focus on something Masculine. This is always some of a challenge for me, but out came my trust Tim Holtz stuff and I managed to get something together.

My background paper is from the Thorndon Hall pack by PaperArtsy.   I have gone round the edges with distress ink and stamped some inky blobs over it.  On to that I have layered Kraft Resist paper, Glassine, and a piece of printed paper.  All have been coloured with distress inks.  Over them I have tied a piece of hemp string (from my local garden centre).  I have used the Old Jalopy die to cut the car, which is made from Kraft Resist paper over heavy brown cardstock.  The sentiment is Tim Holtz, and I have added some ideology bits - some cogs and wheel, and also a tag which says 'wander'.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Gingesnap Creations - On the Road
A Gem of a Challenge - Let's hear it for the boys
Sweet Stampin - One for the boys
Totally Gorjuss - All about boys
Crafters Companion - One for the boys
Hobbystuggu - Card for a man
The Stampman - Anything by Tim

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs

  4. Hi Val. Glad you joined us at Sweet Stapin this week. You sure know how to do the gorgeous distressed (steampunkish) look! It's fab.
    A friend of mine (at the craft group I organise) used that vintage car on a card for her dad, it looked stunning, isn't it gorgeous. Have you seen the "bodyform" by Tim? That's the one I fancy next!!
    Love Debbiexx
