Something Masculine for Allsorts Challenge #785

Hello and welcome! It's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. Brenda is hosting this week and her optional theme is "Masculine/Father's Day". Hope you'll join in with us for your chance to win! Prize come from Craft StashHighlight Crafts and AALL and Create for challenges 784, 785 and 786.

As mentioned last week, all June posts are pre-scheduled as I don't plan to be on the computer much  to spend time with family visiting, so hopefully the post will go live as scheduled.

For my card I got out my gelli plate and brayered some masculine colored inks (Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Peeled Pained) onto it, then I pressed a harlequin stencil onto the gel plate at random and flicked some water before taking the print.

The image is from the Aall and Create set Bird Song #393, stamped with Night of Navy Stampin Up ink. I stamped the image again on scrap paper and fussy cut the bird then added to the card with foam tape. For a little more interest I used another stamp from the same A&C stamp set on the top, side and bottom corner.  I added a sticker sentiment from Tim Holtz's Small Talk sticker quote book and some brads to the wheels to finish it off.
