Sometimes it is difficult to make a masculine card because too many embellishments not suitable for the theme can be dangerous. LOL. At least that's how I feel. The simpler the better when talking about male cards... but I just cannot avoid to add some elements or touches... and that can be also achieved with simplicity.
For this card I watercolored my own imperfect background. The least uniformity, the better. I stamped the wood image and applied embossing powder, the heated and ended up with great texture. Oh, I wish you could see the real texture. I darkened the photo a bit to make it more visible to appreciate.
I used a combination of corrugated cardboard, spray paint, threads, eyelets and more... for the final composition... guess the card resulted very masculine after all... Hope so.
Have a great week.
