Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Red/Black/Brown

Another man's birthday card needed this weekend - they seem to be coming thick and fast but using the three colours in the Fashionable Stamping Challenge, this one came together really quickly.

The globe thingy and the watch were on a set of free stamps with Creativity magazine (I do like a freebie!) and I stamped them onto some kraft card and added Fired Brick DI.  The embossed gears, the umbrella man, tissue tape and the chitchat stickers were of course Tim's and I added a bit of Rub'n'Buff Gold to the gears - still not too sure about that but I thought I'd try it.  I love the little watch parts - this was from the Docrafts Chronology pack.  Job done!

I'm entering this into the FSC challenge - thanks so much for the kickstart.


  1. I love your masculine cards Margie and this one is gorgeous - I have recently got some tissue tape and haven't used it yet! Bit unsure of it ;o) It is so effective used as you have done. Fired brick can be such a bright colour but here it is really subtle - Beautiful!or should that be 'Handsome'?! Lots of love from Laura xxxxxxxx

  2. A fabulous card, perfect for a man. Great use of all the elements. Thanks for joining us at FSC this fortnight.

  3. Fabulous card Margie, the rub 'n' buff is great on the gears. thanks for joining us at FSC. Sue C x
