Grungy Guy Card by Tracey S.

It's Tracey back to share my latest Leaky Shed Studio project with you. While I adore creating feminine, girlie grunge style projects, there's nothing like a grungy masculine card for the men in my life. Leaky Shed Studio has some fabulous pieces that are so perfect for guy cards. Today I'm sharing the birthday card I created for my amazing husband, Gary.

I've gone to my stash and most of the items used have been in my possession for a while. I hope you'll play along with our "Use Your Stash" Challenge. Scroll down for all the details.

Tips and Techniques
It's so easy to give a grungy metallic finish to these Leaky Shed Studio Watch Parts by heat embossing with Fran-tage Aged Black Embossing Enamel. I've mixed in some metal elements to span across the card.

I adore the way the etched lines in this intricate Key Hole stay visible when heat embossed. I combined a base of bronze enamel, then sprinkled lightly with super fine black and reheated.

I used the same technique for the Key and alcohol ink on the metal sentiment.

Here's a view to see both the key and keyhole. I've also added a pair of Leaky Shed clock hands below the sentiment, enameled the same as the Watch Parts. The background is painted with transparent crackle, dry brushed with white gesso, then spritzed with mist to accent the cracks. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
