Playing with Masks....

Its our club meeting tomorrow night and one of our projects is different techniques using MASKS and stencils.
Embossing folders and Masks are great for creating backgrounds if you don't have the right papers so for this card I have used a Creative Expressions Mask called 'Large Polks Dots.
I've used and old PSX Motorbike stamp and just added a splash of red on the tank, then punched out some Cogs from the S.U. retired cog punch.
Will show you more samples after club night. Not a great photo as the gold doesn't like being scanned or photographed...

I have got a severe chest infection at the moment so haven't felt much like crafting these last few days, the doctor as  given me some antibioctics and high a dose steroids, the steroids have now kicked in and I feel like I could craft all day and all night I am on such a high...lOl...lOl..

Thanks for dropping by...

It sounds as if there'll be many more cards posted in the next few hours then Anne! Seriously though, I hope you get well soon. I love the 'industrial' feel of the background here - just right for a male card. Vicky x
