This week's challenge at Paperplay is to make a MALE theme card with twine.  I have got with the Male theme and used this digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Mr Fixer.  Lucky for me I had this image coloured and ready to use for some time so it was just a case of putting the card together.

Inside view

USED:   I embossed a line across some faux brads to create the look of a nail head.
Paper tearing

Medium:  Copics and Pencils, Sukura pen, White gel pen
Papers:   Kanban paper pack (Steam punk theme), Black cardstock and Neenah cardstock for colouring image with alcohol pens
Dies used:  Tim Holtz letter die, Spellbinders - Plain circle, Scallop circle, and ovals.
Embellishments:  Faux brads (for nail heads), My Minds eye label, twine

Thank you for dropping by
