Manly Mondays Week #15

There was quite a bit of talk about Black Magic cards recently. It occurred to me that you don't necessarily have to use Black to achieve the look.  This was made using Early Espresso from the newly renovated Neutrals Collection.

The inspiration came from Regina. Stamped images from Asian Artistry in White Craft Ink, heat set it with the Heat Tool.  Very lightly went over some areas, not all, with Metallic Pencils in Green and Gold. When the actual card is in front of the you, the metallic colors stand out more. Unfortunately I could not "snap" that effect. Embossed the sentiment from Elements of Style in Gold.

Think this would be appropriate for a man recently burned by love or recovering from a terrible disease....

Little Frankii has a girlfriend. When he comes home from spending the day with her he passes out for about 2 hours.  It's exhausting being in Love! Keeping my fingers crossed that I can get a picture of the two them together soon to share with you.

A La Prochaine!
