Hello everyone!! Welcome to my little bit of blogging space.
A very warm welcome to my new followers too!! So pleased to have you join me ladies and I hope you can get a little inspiration here.
OK, down to business. I have a lot of masculine cards to make and I thought I'd better get started on them so I've come up with a fairly 'grungy' centre step card.
The look I was going for was reminiscent of the rusted old worn out Garage they would show in the old movies. You know, the dirty, grotty, untidy, messed up places out in the middle of nowhere, with all the old wrecks and junk sitting around the yard but where the mechanic is an absolute genius for fixing cars. I think I kinda got the look I was going for.
The papers used are from Kaisercraft's 'Garage Days' along with a few strips from their 'Base Coat' range as well.
The border strip is part of a note pad cutting file from Silhouette. Grunged it up a bit with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and Versa Color silver. The small label images were fussy cut from one of the Garage Days 6 x 6 papers.
The cogs are also a cutting file from Silhouette and I coloured them the same as the border strip but with a little Versa Color Lapislazuli and some Kaisercraft Red Gum added in.
The large 'Gas' label was mounted on some paper board to give it some height.
For the inside I simply cut a border strip with Martha Stewart's 'Optic Dot" Border Punch and fussy cut a few more images from the paper.
A few closies showing the layers ...
... lots and lots of layers.
I really like step cards. I've made a couple lately but I think I might be making a whole lot more, they are very versatile and something just a little different from the norm.
I hope you like my Grungy Centre Step Card and are, perhaps, a little inspired to make your own.
Thank you so much for visiting, I'm really pleased you came.
Take care and God Bless.
