Manly Card #2

Here is the second (and final for now) of the manly cards. My MOM totally gushed over this one when she got her hands on it.

No stamping on this one, I used Peel Off stickers. I think these might have been Magenta ones but I'm not sure. A while back I took a class at Pickle that was instructed by their Sakura rep. The techniques were centered around the use of Gelly Roll, Glaze and Souffle pens. On this card I stuck the Peel Off onto a smooth watercolor paper. Added a small amount of the Gelly Roll pen and then using a Koi watercolor brush, pulled out the ink. There is a LOT of pigment in these pens so a little goes a long way. The whole think has a nice subtle glitter and the Peel Off's have a shinny and matte appearance that plain old embossing powder won't give you. Finished it off with some Penny Black designer paper and large eyelets that were set with my crop-a-dile!

This is gorgeous Linda. I would never have thought peel offs could be so stunning! Although, I guess it really is your colouring that is so beautiful!!
