Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing a masculine card from the Pick of the Week.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Vintage Photo Stamp Set using Coffee Archival. I cut it out using one of the Spellbinders Back to Basics Hexagons and inked through the die with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I cut then next 2 sizes of Hexagon dies from rust and brown card.

I stamped the word 'CAMERAS' using Coffee Archival and cut it out using one of the dies from the Back to Basics Tags Die Set. I inked through the die with Vintage Photo.

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Kickin' Rubber M-Bossabilities Folder. I inked all over with Vintage Photo. I wrapped some Baker's Twine from the Earthtones Set around the bottom section of the background and added a Creative Expressions Watch Face Charm.

I assembled the card as shown adding an Idea-ology Hinge Clip to the tag and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Choco Brown around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
