Anything Goes at the Craft Barn with TioT

Hi All,

The challenge this week at Try It In Tuesdays is 'Anything Goes' with products from The Craft Barn who are our Sponsors for this Challenge, full details on the blog.
My DT card is again 'vintage' and manly!  I think the image is from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque) and it is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and then embossed with Ranger Clear UTEE, I love the effect of this technique. The frame is Spellbinders Label  18   and coloured with DI Walnut Stain.  For the background I used a mask for the compass and sponged with Walnut Stain, then stamped some script and 'accounts' with the Rich Cocoa all on cream card, then sponged with DIs.  I ran some beige cardstock through a TH Cogs Embossing Folder and sponged again with Walnut Stain. I tore some cream paper and put it through a 'crimper' and distressed this.  The words are from  a TH 'Stuff to Say Stamp set, all distressed with Walnut Stain.  Hope I didn't bore you with all the details!

It would be lovely to see you over at TioT, and if you need any inspiration, there are some great makes from he rest of the team.
I am also entering this card in:
  Cards for Men - Texture
  Crafty Boots - No Girls Allowed
  Love to Create - Anything Goes
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking, I'm off to finish a 'girly' card, need to make something pretty after my last 2 'Vintage Males'
