A Hoot of a Card!

Hi, guys!  Today I thought I would share with you a card I made for a friend of mine.  He requested a card for someone who liked skulls and/or owls.   I mentioned that I liked to use metal for embossing and he was on board with me using it on his card.

Paper: Ranger Specialty Stamping paper, Gina K Designs Black
Ink: Versafine, Distress inks, Distress Stain Picket Fence, Distress Markers
Stamp: Tattered Angels
Misc.: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Ten Second Studio metal sheet, Tim Holtz pin, clear embossing powder, water brush

I used a sheet of metal from Ten Second Studios for the background.  If you haven't used it, it is great to work with.  I then embossed it and sanded it with my sanding block. I used my distressing tool and my distress inks, too.  I used my new distress markers by Ranger and love them.  I love watercoloring so these made it easy.   This was one distressed card by the time I was finished with it.  My friend was very happy when I gave it to him today.  Can't wait to hear what his friend thought of it!

Hope you have a great day!  Looking forward to sharing more with you tomorrow.

Oh wow -- love the texture the metal gives it! Have you ever used soda cans for metal? Here's a great tutorial on it (just in case your interested). http://www.sewcando.com/2010/07/weve-got-another-awesome-guest-for-this.html

Love your card -- great masculine design!
