Masculine and Distressed!

This is for the challenge on the Latenightstamper's group. The challenge was to distress our card. I am so happy with the way this turned out. It has been a long time since I did this type of card, so fun. I think this would make a fabulous Father's Day card. The strips of Old Olive are distressed with the cutter tool and then inked with the chocolate chip ink pad then they are mounted on Kiwi Kiss which is also inked on the edges. I used daubers to add some ink to the focal image and layers.

Stamps: Backwoods
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Other: Twill tape, brads, Cutter kit, Markers,

Thanks for stopping by today--and leaving a comment if you so desire, it makes my day!

Wow!! You are so right! You have created the absolute most perfect masculine card!! So amazing! I adore the dark greens and browns and all the distresing you did! And the way you curled the paper is incredible! I know it is done on purpose but it truly looks random and aged with time! Amazing!
