Manly Metallics

This is the card I made for my Grandson, turned 16 last week! Soon he'll be older than me...I don't know how that happens! This fits right into the Metallic Color Challenge at Gingersnap Creations. This is a fun group...check us out, and join in the fun!!

The muscle car ('58 Buick), is stamped in black and colored with Spica Pens in black, silver, red and yellow, stamp is by B-Line Designs. The flames around the edge are from a sheet designed by Michelle Ward. I stamped them in Distress Fired Brick and added the same color Distress Stickles with a brush. If you haven't tried the distress stickles, they are pretty cool..........they go on with your finger or a brush, are thinner than reg Stickles...and dry fast. I added some Glossy Accents to the red description sign (which gives the effect of glass), and mounted this all on a piece of black metal from Ten Second Studios, and embossed and sanded it. The background is the camouflage tech from the TJNL. Thanks much, hugz...

I saw the car his mom made for him, too! He's a lucky kid to have these creative women in his life....women who love him. ;-)
