Masculine Feel Better Cards

     Hello Stampers! Can you believe it's already March? I'm starting off the month with a couple of masculine cards that can be used for any occasion with a simple change of sentiment, featuring some Unmounted Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs. The Savvy Sayings Stamp gives you lots of other options for sentiments, including the one I embossed here, onto a smooshed Distress Ink background, framed with the Fabulous Frames Stamp.

     The rest of the stamping was done on a coat of gesso, with the Gingham Background and Background Stripes Unmounted Rubber Stamps. I immediately washed my stamps with warm water and dish soap, and it left no trace at all of the gesso. Once dry, I colored with some LSG sprays, and finished by rubbing some Prima Metallique Wax on top , to reveal the texture. 

     I especially love the blues and silvers on this card, that I made for my uncle! 

     But I know my cousin will appreciate the black, grey, and silvers on this one! 

     Some machine stitching and distressed edges, make for even more texture, making them more masculine. Thanks for looking!
