Manly Monday Red Truck

Welcome back to Manly Monday. I'm running a little behind due to uninvited guests that came over and wouldn't leave. Lol. I have a great handful of manly cards for you to check out. Click on the blog's name and you will be directed to the card. 

My Manly card today uses a truck stamp by Great Impressions stamps.

I stamped it onto white Recollections cardstock with Hero Arts black ink and colored it in with Stampin Up colored pencils. Then I die cut the image with a Spellbinders circle die and embossed it. While the die cut was still in the die I inked the inside with red distress ink. 

I embossed the grey cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder but I masked off the circle where the image is to add interest. I inked the embossed area with Colorbox cat eye inks. The sentiment is by Stampendous with Hero Arts black ink. 

Thanks for looking.
