With Father's Day on the horizon in June, Sarah thought it was the perfect theme for two cards. She created two one-layer designs using Tim's fabulous Road Trip and Artful Voyage stamp sets adding splatters and wild swooshes of Distress Stains to add a modern edge.
A new purchase in the form of Tim's BIRDMAN inspired Tracy's quirky decorated canvas panel. A real masculine treat decorated with masking tape and more stamped images from the Scratched Raven Bird, Kaiser Bird Cage, Kaiser Graffiti and Kaiser Numbers.
A Man Is....Lynne began her "manly" creation with lots of Wendy Vecchi goodies!! She began with the Pocket Watch, added Mustaches, Men and More. She then ended her creation with an ATC and a quote written with a White Gel Pen.
Candy decided to put her grunge on this week and do one for the guys ... Tim Holtz style! Her 6x6 board features Tim Holtz' Old Jalopy flaming Mini Flourish "smoke" from it's tailpipe. For a more masculine, grungy feel, Candy created this piece almost entirely from Distress Embossing Powders and Distress Inks.
Terry made a Tag for the guys.... On her background Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo and the Tim Holtz Stampset French Market along with Crackle Rock Candy. Then Paper Artsy's "Hot Pick" and Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts For the Guys all coloured with Distress Inks and Crackle Distress Paint. To finish off, she played with The Journey, Sprocket Gears and some items that she had in her stash.
Dan went with a motif of cogs, gears and rivets for the cover of his guy-themed journal. He used the Clockworks embossing folder to add texture to his copper coloured metal then used blending solution to reveal the silver colour on the raised parts. Finally he rubbed Claudine Hellmuth Charcoal Black paint into the recessed areas and distressed it with a Tim Holtz sanding block. Other products he used included the Classified Info stamp, long fasteners, Archival black ink and Barn Door distress ink.Linda Elbourne
