Visible Image, Distress inks, Wow embossing powder, Crackle accents and Glossy accents.

Hi there,

It' the first 1st the month, and that means a new Visible Image Challenge has begun, and the June theme is.....'Man Oh Man',
 this could be for for Fathers day, Birthday's, Anniversary's, or any occasion that needs a masculine card or project.

I've made 2 cards for Fathers Day, each of them using the fabulous Men's Collage, Bronte Script and Tyre Marks.

For the first card, I stamped the Men's Collage 4 times, the first layer I stamped in Broken China ink, also stamping the Winter Tree in Vintage Photo, on this layer too, then ripped the card around the edges. 
The second layer I stamped in Versamark, heat embossed with silver powder, and fussy cut the pocket watch, I also cut out the face of it too.
 The third layer was stamped in Black, out of this I fussy cut the pocket watch again, glued it behind the silver one, then added crackle accents to the face.

The last layer was again stamped in Versamark, heat embossed in black, and the classic car was fussy cut. 
All the layers were then glued into place with Pinflair gel, and mounted on a piece of ripped Kraft card.
The background was stamped with Bronte Scipt, using Vintage photo and Broken China, and mounted onto some ripped Kraft card.
I coloured a piece of American seam binding with the distress inks, then stamped the Tyre marks using black Stazon ink. The finishing touch was the sentiment, taken from the Handy Hints set.

The second card, was made in a similar way, but without ll the layers. I coloured on the reverse side of a piece of Centura  Card, in 4 different Distress colours, and stamped the Mens Collage.
The background was stamped with the Bronte Script in Mustard Seed, then over stamped with the Tyre Marks stamp, which I coloured using the 4 colours, making it multi coloured. 

I added a few black gems and the sentiment.
