Follow your heart

Hi all
Just a quick post today. I am doing a class over at Big picture . The class is called The mother Load and during September ( i think lol) we will be doing one Lay Out A Day. ( LOAD) :)
Well here's hoping that i can do it. We are in training for it now so its not to late to join the fun , its a great way to tweak the mojo.
We are on Week 2 and this weeks challenge is to use old stuff from our Stash.

I used the  flock adhesive which i really dint think i would ever use. The other thing we are looking at is ways to sped up our scrapping so i set myself a time limit on this, not sure that its my style, but I'm not overly disappointed at the results. till next time !

All Krafted.

Today's post is a submission for  cas-ual fridays Kraft meets men challenge. We where asked to make our projects using Kraft and in a masculine theme.

I set to work on my card, taking a piece of kraft and a embossing plate and ran it through my Ezy press ( Die cutting embossing machine). Then without removing the embossing plate i went to work with some distress Inks and blending tools.

I  stamped and embossed  the car on glossy black cardstock, then stamped it a second time on white cardstock and coloured so  i could cut out the windows.

I Just loved the effect of the colours and blending on the craft so i just kept on going and whipped up this layout with the same inks and embossing plate. Well not exactly a manly project it could easily be with a change of photo.

There is only 2 pieces of coloured cardstock used in this layout. The dark brown and the slice of blue under the title. The rest is Ink, I love using basics and making fab from them, it saves money and it makes it oh so personal.

Hope you enjoy my double take on this krafty challenge!
