Cards for Men Challenge - Tuesday 27/4/10

The topic for the Cards for Men Challenge this week was "monochromatic".  I normally shy away from topics such as this but part of these challenges in the blog world is to challenge you - and this one did!!  I used some Red Hot Bed Spanish images I've had for some time in various shades of orange and teamed it up with two different shades of pearlescent papers.  The die-cut images I popped out and then got my distress tool to them and then ink the edges with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink - you'd never guessed I liked them would you?  I decorated the inside of the card like I normally do as I think a nice inside and out makes the card better.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Crafty Angels - Summer
Flourishes - Vintage
Quixotic - How distressing?
Lili of the Valley - Here comes the Summer.
