Masculin card

I have told this before and will tell it again: I am not a card maker and not a stamp person. Though I do like to send home made cards to friends and family and so I struggle and figt with cards, sketches stamps and envelopes. not sure why I keep punishing myself here.

As for stamping techniques: I know how to heat emboss and how to layer stamps. I hate colouring stamps (digi or actual stamps) but I do like colouring in general. I would like to learn how to mask while stamping and how to use more than one colour on a stamp. 

Why this talking about techniques? At Red Rubber Inspirationals they were talking about techniques and I made a card with the only technique I really master: Layering. Though you might wonder if it is a rea technique or just a matter of stamp on stamp on stamp. Not sure and to be honest: I could not care less: I love how this card turned out. I planned to make a masculin card for a birthday and it looks pretty masculin to me. 




Misc: glitter spray, sequins

About the glitter spray: I use the cheapest glitter hair spray I can find. I have been using it for years and it works like a charm. The glitter is really fine and I also find it a great fixator for all media used. The spray can I buy only costs me ,99. Pretty good for a scrapbook supply, right?
The last two photo's are a bit crappy but I wanted to show you the effect of the glitter spray. Cool, isn't it? 

Have a great weekend!
