Distress ink card

 I needed to make a mans card as I have loads of ladies cards but only one or two mens cards.  I really enjoyed making this card but got in an awful mess with the ink and had to scrub my hands a bit to remove it all.  It was great fun to do  so i may make a few variations of this card to add to my collection.

I used Tim Holtz Distress inks spiced marmalade,evergreen bough,milled lavender and iced spruce using the Wrinkle free distress ink technique. The stamp I used is also a Tim Holtz and it makes a great mans card I think. The tassley bits were in my stash, ooh I musn't forget the backing paper which I stamped but I cant remember the name or make of the paper.

 Thank you for taking the time to look.
