Modsquad Challenge: Masculine Card

Modsquad Challenge: Masculine Card

Hello friends! Today's card features the Type Talk stamp set and coordinating die set and some paper strips fro my stash. I toned down the sparkle for this card to make it a little more masculine so I could share over at the Modsquad challenge.

To start the card, I stamped the typewriter and the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Ink in Twilight. I heat embossed both the sentiment and the typewriter with clear embossing powder. 

Next, I colored the typewriter with a few of my blue Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and my Gelly Roll Metallic pen in silver

Then I turned to die cutting. I die cut the typewriter using the coordinating die and then cut a hole in the image using a tiny rounded bar die found in the set so that I can make the sentiment peek out of the typewriter. I then die cut the sentiment using the die that looks like a piece of paper. Next, I turned to Simon Says Stamp's Strips 2 die set to cut some blue paper strips in my stash. I then used liquid glue to add the strips onto a piece of  scrap copy paper in a repeating pattern. I then cut the whole thing with the Gina K Master Layout 2 die set. Then I decided that my background needed a little more interest, so I added some of the dots from the Type Talk set randomly on the panel with more of the Twilight ink.

To finish the card, I tucked the sentiment through the die cut hole to make it look like it was coming out of the typewriter. I then added foam tape around the edges of the typewriter so that it leaves room behind the typewriter for the paper to move! I then placed the whole thing on the card base. I added a few sequins from Catherine Pooler's Cincinnati sequin mix. 

I then went to glue the panel to my card base and smudged the card base! So I ink blended the card base with the light blue ink already on my ink blender! (Tragedy averted!)

Thanks for reading!
