A brief message

Hi everyone! I was playing around with the faux silk technique and came up with this.

Tissue paper was crumbled up and added to a piece of cardstock using regular Elmer's glue. I then took distress dyes and painted them on to get the effect. Let's see, I think I started off with scattered straw, then added vintage photo, etc.

Stamps are from A*Muse Studio and are retiring soon. I colored the brief case with Copic's and used a square nestie to cut it out. MFT fishtail die used to cut out the sentiment. Brown, black and white cardstock is from PTI.

Didn't this turn out to be a great masculine card?

Thanks for stopping by!
