Simply masculine

Another CAS card, this time using the sketch for Clean and simple 202 (turning it on its side):

I decided to use the acrylic block background technique which I first tried here, but soon realised that I didn't have an acrylic block that would stamp the smaller rectangles, so I had to improvise and use a Ranger memory glass slide - it wasn't so easy to use because it is so thin, so I had to ink it, place it on the card and then almost throw it off on to a piece of kitchen towel - I think it was quite successful though. I used an ordinary acrylic block for the larger rectangle, each time inking up with antique linen and old paper distress inks.

The car stamp and the sentiment are from a Personal Impressions set, inked with brushed corduroy distress ink.
