This is the reason why I like to look for new challenge sites. The challenge site, Anything But Cute is for mixed media challenges and the current challenge is masculine. I wasn't even sure if I had anything that is specifically mascaline, but once I started, the ideas just came to me.
So I started with the idea of creating a tag. I have a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing plate of measuring tapes. So I embossed. Then I added some ink from CTMH (Olive, Gypsy, Black). I also used a Chocolate ink pad from AMM (had this forever). Then I stamped the car with black ink and this car stamp I got from a mail-order stamp club that I enrolled in for one month about three years ago Although I love the car stamp, the quality of the stamp is really poor - thin stamp.
I also stamped a light post from 7 Gypsies with the black archival ink pad from CTMH. Shaded each of them with Whisper alcohol pen from CTMH.
The white etchings were stamped on with white acrylic paint and a stamp that I got from Rubber Paws. This is the first time I used it and I can tell I'm going to use it more and more. I don't know the company or where it was purchased. Shoot, I can't even tell what it says...if anything. LOL
The sentiment is from the car set and was stamped and inked and adhered. Then the twine/button and ribbon. Sure I like it, but a tag...what am I going to do with it??
Ah ha...my art journal had some violet ink spots and of course the left over splotches from the inks/paints from the tag project. So I added more of the ink colors and some other random additions to create a background for the tag. Now it's a page and I plan on cutting it down for a card front. Love it!
