OSAAT DT Card - # 210 - Anything Goes

Good afternoon to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  Thank you for dropping by to visit.

It is time for another challenge at One Stitch At A Time. The challenge this time is Anything Goes.  This is always popular because it is really up to you to do whatever you like, but remember if you use an image from our sponsor Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet  you can win seven digi images and you can enter as many times as you wish. Of course you can still win a prize even if you don't use an image from our sponsor.  So what are you waiting for?

My Card

My card is made using Steampunk Watch from Reeces Scrap Pieces. As usual my card is a neat and tidy steampunk ! Lol!  Those of you who know me also know that I just don't do grunge I'm afraid.   The base card is from AnnaMarie Designs and is  14.5 x 14.5 cms  in dark grey pearl card.  I rarely use ready made cards because I find they are just too flimsy but these from AnnaMarie are pretty good quality. The black and grey striped card is from Pennies Worth.  I used Papermania Tri-Boss embossing folder Chronology Clocks to emboss a piece of mat silver card from my bits box.   The digi image was printed onto a scrap of palest grey card and the Papermania cogs were also die cut from scraps so I will be able to play in the playground with the rest of you playmates!  The sentiment was computer generated onto the pale grey card and matted onto the dark grey pearl card.  I originally thought that I would fussy cut the watch but I made a real hash of that so I had to go with Plan B. Lol!

Well that's another male card that can go into my box.  Always nice to get some cards for the menfolk in there!

Hope you are all keeping well and have been enjoying your weekend.

Hi Christine
I'm not a grunge/steam punk gal either so it is difficult to make guys cards sometimes. This one is spot on for a fella.
Best wishes.

Good evening Christine.
Love your card, those "cogs are brilliant as is the whole design.
I am not into Grunge although I have done a few. Certainly could not cope with "steampunk" unless like you have done ....... Neat & Clean!!
Have a great week

Helo Christine, Excellent man card, love the image printed on different colour. I am going to try some steampunk soon when the big tidy is either finished or abandoned. xx Flora

Hazel said...

Christine, love your card. I am not a great fan of grunge, but this is lovely. Hazel xx

Oh I do so love your non-grungy Steampunk card Christine. It's also a nice CAS creation in my opinion too. I love the silver embossed background and the striped paper really sets it off. Great card.

Morning Christine,
I'm like you don't do steampunk or grunge, but your card would be great for a man.
