Pipe line

Hello folks

The sun is still shining here in the north west of the UK and the weather people are already talking of a drought this summer. It is always seems to be famine or feast with rain in the UK. Floods one year and a drought the next year. I am sure the rain will prove them wrong.
Back to something crafty.......
Another male card for you today and once again I have taken inspiration from Pinterest. 
This is my version of a combination of two cards from Sheena's Inkoids design team - Jacquie Jacobs and Julie Stafford.
For my card I have used - 

  • Sheena's stamping card
  • matt black card
  • white/hint of silver centura pearl (for the card base)
  • walnut stain, rusty hinge, tea dye and antique linen distress ink
  • Sheena's create-a-flower another brick stencil
  • Sheena's time traveller In the pipeline stamp and die set
  • Pebeo gilding wax - silver and king gold

I used matt black card to cut the pipes and dials and then added the gilding wax to make them look rusty.
I make the background using the distress inks on a piece of Sheena's stamping card. I then embossed the card using the brick stencil and inked through it with the walnut stain distress ink to add more depth.
Thank you for stopping by today

  1. No rain here much Lesley, but no sun either, last few days the warmest it's been is 11 deg so back to coats and heating.

    A great masculine card, always difficult ones but this is perfect.
