Glitter? On a boy card?!

Sure...why not. As long as it isn't like pink glitter, right?

And first, I have to apologize for the funny colors on this card. I had to shoot with a regular indoor lighting because it is RAINING here! (Sort of exciting for here...LOL!) And there is absolutely no natural light other than gray shining in the window. Totally yuck for photography. I'm gonna work on my lighting box soon. *wink*

This card is for the ATS challenge this week. It was a sketch challenge! YAAAY!

I didn't have any boy-ish papers that were going to match up with one another so I just used embossed cardstock instead. heh

See that little embellishment? Remember yesterday when I showed you the girly purple card with the Shimmerz paints? Well, I used Shimmerz on this card, too. Where? On the grungeboard. hee!

Keep in mind, I'm only have one pot of the Shimmerz, right? Well, I painted the grungeboard with the Shimmerz paint then I waited for it to dry a bit. Then I took some Vintage Photo distress ink and dabbed over the (purplish) glittered grungeboard. Don't you think it looks like burnished copper? I do. You should see it in person. Looks like a sewer drain cover. LOL! Perfect for my manly card, no?!

What I used: stamp from C.C. Designs at All That Scraps, Memento ink, Copic markers, SU CS, Basic Grey PP, Tim Holtz grungeboard, Shimmerz Paints, Tim Holtz Distress ink, Bo Bunny brad, stick on embellies, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Making Memories brads, sentiment is from Amy R. stamps at All That Scraps.

glitter = metal shavings from a project he failed to clean up. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Great man card, Jennifer!
