The Mechanics of my card!

Been a good while since I did any inky card making and had such a great time making this card. I don't do cute for men very often, like the rugged sort and there is so many fab stamps to make these kinda cards. This is for a man who was a mechanic so hopefully it rekindles some memories of the past. The embellishment with the 80 on it, have added a pointer to simulate a speedometer of sorts. Inked everything with Tim Holtz inks, the cogs, added Distress Copper stain. Used Linen, Krafts and Black Bazzil card, roughed up the edges with my Timmy distressing  Tool. Added a lock and key which you can't see that well but it's there! - Make it messy - Inspire me Fridays/Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Distressed - Show us your favourites/ creating from scratch with stamps - Birthday, Die cutting and Embossing - Handmade Embelishmentsm - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Man card
