Farewell Ryan

One of the laddies that worked in the IT dept at work left to go to a new job, and as he helped us quite bit, especially with the Sue Wilson charity DVD last year I made a leaving card for him from all of us at The Papeterie.
I really enjoy making male cards - I think it's probably because I was never a pink, girly girl. And I'm really loving using the Tim Holtz layering stencils for various techniques.

Kraft card
Distress Inks: Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Gathered Twigs
Layering Stencils: Croc, Chevrons, Woodgrain
Visible Image sentiment stamp from Scotland set exclusively available from The Papeterie
Tim Holtz Idea-Ology: mini gears, game spinners, long fasteners
Seam Binding
Clear embossing powder

Straight after I inked through the croc stencil onto the tag, I covered with clear embossing powder - even though the Distress Ink looked dry, the embossing powder still stuck to the inked parts, creating this great effect. I also did this on the card panel with the chevron stencil and 2 different colours of distress ink

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
As You Like It - heat embossing, because of the glossy effect it gives this otherwise flat project
Aud Sentiments - any sentiment for a guy
Papertake Weekly - for the boys
Craft Your Passion - for the boys

Debbi - this is an absolutely wonderful tag! The gears and arrows are perfect for the masculine theme and the colors with some of the ink embossed is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your project & creativity with us!
