Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 166: A Special Man.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

The theme for this Challenge is For a Special Man
With Father's Day a couple of days away we would like to see your projects for a Special Man.
This challenge is being hosted by Lin.
You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be just cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

To make this card  started by creating a Masterboard made with old car tax disks.

I started with an A3 sheet of cartridge paper.

Then took several old tax disks and ripped them apart.
These had originally belonged to a friend who had kept them for years so it seemed a shame to just throw them away. For this project I am only using the red ones though there are several other colours too and I will use them sometime in the future I'm sure.

I attached these randomly to the paper.

And then using this Prima stencil,

to apply ink to the top of the disks and heat embossed it with clear powder.

To finish the Masterboard, I sprayed the surface with red ink and then buffed it to remove the excess from the embossed areas.

You can see here that I also added a text stamp to the design.
I have also used left over pieces of this Masterboard
  which was originally made using this stamp.

Finally before putting everything together, I used  a Tim Holtz stamp (Vintage Auto CMS265) to create the topper for the card which was also heat embossed.

I used a blending tool to add the distress ink and then sprinkled water over the top and dabbed it off to create the splashed effect.
I used a Creative Expressions stamp (Classic Cars) for the sentiment.

At this stage I was ready to construct the card. I used red textured card and smooth black to layer the sections. Some of the edges were distressed before everything was put together and the card finished by adding black gems down two sides.

 I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 Happy crafty card making.
