for the boys

It's Delicious Doodles challenge day and as it's nearly Fathers' day here in the UK we're asking all of you to make a card for one of the men in your life. I know a lot of you shy away from cards for the blokes but it's easy really and Teri has some really great images geared to them. My DT sisters have so many to show off.
Anyway, back to the card I made....using the super sketch at Die Cutting Divas.
The image is a vintage Jaguar coloured with promarkers before cutting out with a nestie and ink distressed whilst in the die. Some core-dinations from the TH/ranger collection edge distressed for the mat. Glossy accents used on lights and windscreen.
I used silver promarker for the chrome work.

The 2 other panels were cut from embossed red/kraft core-dinations. Again the sandpaper comes in handy here. Matted onto linen look grey cs.

The main BP was from a card kit from Duck Pond Crafts


The embellies are from stash. A couple of cogs in the bottom R.H. corner and an extra large brad with a clock charm in the top L.H. corner.

All this was matted onto white cs, again distressed - with sandpaper and ink before attaching to a dark grey card base.
Now it's your turn guys and gals. Show us your cards for men over at Delicious Doodles for a chance of winning FIVE images of your choice.

I am entering this card into one or two challenges
