Joanna Sheen Challenge - Masculine



Second post of the day for me! :) Steady! lol.

So today sees the start of our new fortnightly challenges over at the  Joanna Sheen Challenge, and our theme this time is 'Masculine'.

I used this brilliant stamp set called Speedy Celebrations and even though male cards are somewhat out of my comfort zone, I had a blast making this.  I heat embossed the stamped speedo image and put the dial on top of a piece of die-cut acetate.  I used other stamps from the set to create the background cogs and the number-plate and the border was cut on my digi-cutter.  The papers are MME and the black and white twine was also from Joanna Sheen.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Papertake Weekly - Fab sketch
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Spots and Stripes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Stamp Something
CES Challenges - No Girls Allowed
Thanks so much for checking out my today I hope everyone has a smashing Sunday!

PS - You asked me ages ago what I'm using for glue on the beaded pins - I tried the super sticky stuff from Wild Orchid which was good - but found that Rangers 3d gloss is brilliant.
