Masculine Mixed Media Card

Hello Crafty friends it is Natasha here today sharing a fun masculine mixed media inspired card!  I had so much fun creating today's card!  I created this card for my husband for Father's Day and he loved it!  I hope you enjoy it too!  So let's get started!  

First I started by working on my background.  I started with a gelli print from my stash.  I dry embossed the background using the Tim Holtz Typewriter embossing folder.  I ran it through my die cutting machine and then starting to ink blend on top for added interest and texture.  I used 2 colors of Distress Oxide Ink: Ground Espresso and Black Soot.  I applied the ink around the card panel edges and to some of the raised letters.  Once my ink blending was complete I used my distress tool to rough up the edges!  I LOVE this tool and it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!  Once the edges were distressed I applied a bit more ink using archival ink and a foam blending tool.  

Once my panel was inked up and distressed, it was time to add embossing powder!  I applied WOW embossing ink in various sections of the panel, including some of the raised letters and some edges of the panel.  I used 2 colors of embossing powder:  Etched Platinum and Weathered Gold.  I continued adding powder until I had the look I was going for.  In various sections I overlapped the colors, I love this look!  I then applied a bit more oxide ink and archival ink over the embossed sections.  I love the rustic vibe this provides!  

Next I worked on my ephemera pieces.  I applied ink to the edges of each piece helping to create that vintage vibe!  I also added droplets of water to create more texture.  Then on 1 of the pieces of ephemera I also added embossing powder.  Once everything was complete I started to adhere my card together.  I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape.  I completed my card with a sentiment "Limited Edition" and adhered this to the card front!  I had a lot of fun creating this card for my hubby!  Be sure to check out the WOW shop - there are so many gorgeous powders and they help create that vintage/rustic vibe!  

Thank you for stopping by today - I will be back soon with more mixed media fun!
