Manly Monday

Manly Monday this week is going to be awesome. I have a fabulous card to share with you and some pretty amazing ladies are allowing me to share links to their masculine cards with you as well. Drop by there blogs and let them know you saw their card here:)
My card has this fun iris folding stamp by Stamp N Plus and can be found HERE. After I stamped it with Hero Arts ink and did the iris folding, I blended some distress inks on the off white paper to make a sky and a ground. On the sky I used the colors Broken China, Stormy Sky and Black Soot distress inks with an ink blending tool. For the ground I used Frayed Burlap. After I was happy with the inking, I sprayed the entire image with a mixture of water and gold metallic powdered chalk. The sticker and leaf die cut are from my stash. I thought the sentiment was appropriate for the stamped image. I hope you agree.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
