OWH Mid-Week Throwdown

The midweek throwdown challenge over at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog this week is to create a masculine card. I used scraps of grey and black, and added a piece of DP from the Making Memories Wedding stack. I embossed the black panel with a Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder (brick wall) and added black brads to the corners of the main image. The image is by Stampscapes, and was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Tim Holtz gunmetal distress embossing powder (ep). After embossing, I realized the distress ep had a few flecks of glitter in it, so I covered the entire image with the Versamark pad and added clear detail embossing powder to completely encase the loose glitter. It won't fleck off now, that's for sure! The sentiment is from the SU! set wonderful favorites and it was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
That's another card for my OWH box that I hope to mail out within the next week. I hope you're enjoying your middle-of-the-week so far. Thanks for stopping in and I'll be back again soon!

Carol, I love your card. the stamp is very nice and just everything that you put together looks great. I never thought of covering an entire image with clear EP to hold on glitter. thanks for a great idea.
