Just thinking as I post this card - how appropriate to be making a male card today - our home backs onto the Townsville Street Racing Car Track - used once a year for the Townsville 400 V8 Supercars ....lots of noise and although I'm not a race car enthusiast it's interesting to sit comfortably on our back deck and watch the race on the TV and experience the really race sounds.
Anyway back to my Male card - I've used the Fusion Card challenge sketch , and have added lots of texture for The Male Room #64 challenge - Add Texture... I dry embossed and then used gold and silver embossing powder on the raised dots. Then I had a dabble at the 'tarnished foil' technique - embossing it with a embossing folder and adding gold, silver EP and some copper Inference Powder and some black Archival Ink. I had this lovely Designer Paper with the sentiment on it and used that to select my card colours and to finish layered these to a grey card and attached a silver embossed stamped fob watch.  I am also posting to Happy Little Stamper July Mixed Media challenge - Texture. Thanks for taking a peek



  1. Hi Robyn, That's a fab card. I always struggle with male cards.

    Did smile at you watching the race on your TV, but hearing the sounds from the track:)

    Hope you have a lovely day. Sue

  2. SUPER textured card, love the effect of the embossing powder on the dots, the tarnished foil effect is beautiful too, a GREAT textured card. This is perfect for The Male Room Textured challenge, thank for sharing. Faith DT

  3. Super combination of challenges on this great guy card. I love the texture on the top circle and the sentiment combined with the pocket watch is lovely. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room, and I'm sorry to be so late commenting! Deborah, DT.
