DL.ART Thankful Thursday #205 - Boys or Men

Happy Thursday!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is Boys or Men. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your purchase at DL.ART.


For my Father's Day cards, I used a Tim Holtz car stamp. I masked it off and then inked the edges with TH Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.


The panel behind the card was embossed with Emerald Creek Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder. The Memory Box Gear Assembly die was embossed with Emerald Creek Hammered Metal Embossing Powder.


Here's a close-up of the Hammered Metal...the texture is fabulous.


I tried to get a picture of the texture of the Burnt Copper Leaves embossing powder.


I used black and brown Twine from DL.ART for my cards. The tags and sentiments are from My Craft Spot (no longer in business).


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
2) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Boys or Men project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)
