Embossing & No Kids Allowed


I've got a few postings tonight as I have a friend coming to stay over the weekend, so wont get much chance of any crafting but hopefully plenty of retail therapy - best cram it all in tonight. I've tackled a 'men's' card tonight, how brave am I. I love this image, yes a bit scary but it makes a great men's card. I've embossed the background card with a cuttlebug folder - I used this one because I thought it depicted wheels. I've edged the card with TH Distress Ink Tea Dye. I've coloured the image with Promarkers just using the one pen to match the background which was Caramel. Couple of Dress It Up stars and the sentiment is from Magenta. I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers - Emboss It.
