Man Cards #1

Hello you gorgeous peeps and welcome to my blog.  
It's been ages since I posted last .. the last couple of weeks just flew by me and I hardly even noticed they were gone until today!!  Old age creeping in I think!!  LOL!!

I'm here to share another 'Man' Card.  Only one more to go and then I should be done for this year.  Of course, next year it all starts all over again!!  

This card, and the one I'm showing you in a couple of days, are both predominantly (been reading the dictionary LOL!!) made with Prima's Engraver Collection.  Love these papers, especially for 'male' cards although there are also pages in the pad that can be used for girly ones as well.

This particular card was actually the second one made and I just used the left overs and bits I didn't use on the first one (which I will show you second!!  Confused????  Me too!!).

Did a bit of doodling around the edges and 'rusted' the keyhole with some Patina Rust acrylic paint.

The inside .. added some doodling here as well ('cos I like it!!).

Some closies of the layers ..

.. and done!!  This card is fairly basic .. not a lot happening on it (no crackle, no stamping, no splatters) but, sometimes, simplicity is best!!  Did sploosh some paint and gesso around though, 'cos I couldn't resist!!

Hope you like and hope you'll come back to check out the next one in a few days.

Thank you so much for visiting and do enjoy the rest of your day.

Take care and God Bless.
