Masculine Mixed Media

Hey there! Another week has begun and I'm just sneaking in another entry for the SS Monday Challenge.
I tried to make it a bit Mixed Media and a bit grunge, inspired by the design team, but it still looks fairly CAS! I guess I'm just a clean & simple gal at heart!

I stamped the circle border with Antique Linen and a touch of Spiced Chai and then stamped the newspaper script in dark brown.  I'd previously made the leaf die-cuts, by watercolouring and heat embossing with a new purchase, Distress Embossing Glaze Powder (Cracked Pistachio).  The sentiment is a tape which I outlined with Sepia Marker. 

At my beach house I have a box of old Scrapbooking ephemera, that I rarely use these days  and I found the wood clock face and a button.  I inked up the clock face with Distress Inks.  
To finish I mounted this panel on a black card base. 

Stamps:- Papertrey Ink 'Circle Borders'; Kaisercraft 'Newsprint'

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges:-

                                     Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. A fabulous card Jenny - loving those leaves. Like you I am basically a CAS cardmaker, and find adding grunge and layers difficult
    Stay safe

  2. I just left a message Jenny and blogger played up .....hope you get it x

    1. Thanks Mac. I think it's because Blogger is changing. I'm having quite a few problems:)

    2. Thanks for letting me know. I love how you did the strip down the left hand side and what a fabulous design Jenny x.

  3. Love this masculine collage, Jenny! Love that stamped border and the added dimension of the colored leaves and clock face!

  4. I really like this-it is CAS but has so much detail in a CAS card and that is so hard to do! The border looks great and I love the layering up of the clock and the colour is just perfect for a masculine card. Thanks for joining CASology x

  5. So cool! I love your collage design Jenny! A fantastic vintage and masculine card. I was watching TH video earlier about the Distress Glazes. I need to give those a try. Your leaves are beautiful! xx

  6. I love all the textures and warm colors! Thank you for joining us at CASology!
