No 1 Son

Last week saw the launch of a new challenge blog, The Male Room. I knew that this was a challenge that I wanted to take part in, as like many other I struggle sometimes with male cards. This Thursday it's my son's birthday, I normally have no trouble with cards for him, as he's a mechanic for a saloon car race company, he rides motor cycles and also loves fishing. As long as I stick to any of these three he's happy. So this card which I'm going to enter into the first challenge, which is Anything Goes. The card base is an 8x8 green card, which I placed the backing paper straight onto. This came from Debbi Moore's Cards For Men. Next I stamped the globe stamp (from Just Right stamps) onto some white card stock and also three more times onto some scrap paper. With the scrap stamped pieces I cut out the globe from the first, the compass from the second and lastly I cut around the globe and compass together. I used these as masks and with distress inks coloured the globe with tumbled glass, the compass with firebrick red and then coloured the outside of it all with old paper. Next I stamped  the motorcycle (from Visible Image) onto card with memento Tuxedo Black, then coloured over the top with old paper. The No 1 Son was a free stamp which I got with a magazine. I mounted these onto green card and  stuck them to the card front.

I am also going to enter this card into the follow challenges
Inspire Me Friday - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
