Choose Your Own Theme at Stamping Sensations

It's the first Sunday of the month and that means it's time for a new theme at Stamping Sensations. This month everyone gets to select their own theme, so anything goes with stamping! Our prize comes from Stix 2  and the winner will receive a fabulous prize package of mount foam, foil, glitter and various glues and tapes.

So for my theme I selected "Forms of Transportation" and I made a masculine card. 



The stamp set is an older Tim Holtz stamp set - The Journey,  but I've only just recently purchased it because I really don't have that many masculine stamps. 

The background was done using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink and I flicked some water onto the inked background for a fun reaction. A couple of stencils (Penny Black Oscillations and Stampers Anonymous mini tile stencil - sorry can't find a link) and a stamp that was part of the same set was used on the background for some more interest. Chipped Sapphire Distress ink was used to stamp the vintage car. The image panel was then cut out using a Deckle die by Sizzix. Before adhering my card front I stenciled in some stripes with the Classy Stripes stencil. 


I always find stars work well for masculine cards and I found these in my box of extra die cuts from previous projects so I added them. The sentiment is from one of Penny Black's critter sets. I like this simple font for masculine cards.
