With Father's day this weekend, I have been on a bit of a mission to get some masculine cards made to have down in the Barracks store to sell.
This is my most recent creation... I went for a grungy, dirty look. It's one of the first things that springs to mind for me when I think of my Dad. My Dad collects and restores vintage cars so he spends alot of time in his garage looking grungy and dirty (Love you Dad!). Even though my Dad never owned a motorcycle, I thought the image still went well with the grungy look I wanted to achieve.
I have used a non SU! embossing folder I found and sponged and inked it up to give it an old and worn look. I scrunched it up and tore it slightly (I know!) to complete the look.
I gave the same treatment to the motorcycle image and then covered it with a glaze and tried to crack it. Not so successful but it is still passable. I do love though that the glaze made some of the sponging look kind of rusty.
Thanks for taking a peek!
