Handmade Masculine Card with New "Inspired By" Sketch at Sketch N Scrap!

Hello again crafty friends!!!  We have a fabulous new sketch up over at Sketch N Scrap!  This is our mid-month "Inspired By" sketch which is inspired by an original page, then given to us (And you!) to scrap!

I decided to do a get well card for a close family friend!  He's been under the weather and I am hoping to bring a smile to his face upon receiving this in the mail :-)

Any who... Here's a look at the sketch:

I tend to always fall back on Tim Holtz products for ALL my masculine cards and pages (it helps that I am completely obsessed with all his products anyway!!!).  So I started with a Kraft base and went to work!  

I inked all my paper and ephemera edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I grabbed some Creative Embellishments chipboard from my stash and inked it up as well, then added a heavy coat of rock candy crackle paint.

I used Vintage Photo distress stain to color my grungeboard hinges, then added several brads for detail.  

Finally, I printed the sentiment from my computer using a font I downloaded called "bad grunge" (one of my favs!).  

And there you have it!!!  Another creation made fabulous by the amazing Tim Holtz (and a little bit of myself!!!!).  

 Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
