For the Man in your Life

Hi and welcome to another challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and this time we would love to see something 'For the Man in Your Life'.  For the month of June we have a new sponsor - Dilly Beans.

For my piece I used a metal foil sheet for the main panel, embossed with a Couture Creations folder,which I sanded and then painted with black Adirondack, rubbed back when almost dry. For the colour on the balloon, I used Promarkers, which are Alcohol based. The back panel is black card embossed twice with a Spellbinders folder and then rubbed with silver metallic rub ons. The riveted sentiment panel was cut from the same EF.
My wonderful teamies have again produced some amazing inspiration, so please pop over here and take a look, you won't be disappointed.

I am entering this in :
  Creative Craft Challenges - For the Fellas
  Tuesday Throwdown - Embossing
  Shopping our Stash - No patterned paper
  The Crafting Cafe - Here Come the Boys

This is a scheduled post, so I will catch up with you soon.
