Grateful For You- Masculine!

Hi Blog Friends!

Feeling a little better today. 
I took some Zicam as soon as I realized I had caught a bug!

I have a post for you today that fits into two challenges.....

The 30 Day Coloring Challenge
(Today is day 29)
Found here:
11th Anniversary Celebration Challenge

 The challenge:

I thought I would create a masculine card & show you what I did.
I used PTI- Cover Plate: Angles Die.
(After the 2017 SAF- I had to have this die for this very reason!) ;)
I pulled out some wood veneer- 1/64" thick & attached Ken Oliver's-Stick It to the back.
Ran it through my Big Shot with the Cover Plate, pulled off the framed area,
 & attached it to a black background- cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
(Right there, tells you this card will be just a bit larger than "normal" for me.)

For the coloring,
I pulled out my Alcohol Markers- ( a mix of Copics & Spectrum Noir),
 & began to test them on the edges of the veneer as you can see above.
I wanted to create an ombre look, from the left to the right, as much as I could.
I colored the sections one at a time.

As I finished each section, I laid them into the frame & burnished them with my Teflon Bone Folder.

I cut 5 layers of the sentiment (PTI- Especially You), 
& layered them up one on top of the other with tweezers,
 & Multi-Med. Matte, &
placed my sentiment.
Just a TIP:
I punched a few dots with my 1/4" Hole Punch to help me figure out where to put my Nuvo Drops.....
(As seen above)

Here is the inside:
Making it consistent with the front of the card.....
I used just a few pieces of the Cover Plate: Angles Die to the left,
 & some more 1/4" Hole Punch's for the right.
The sentiment is also from the PTI set- Especially You.

I added my Nuvo Crystal Drops- Ebony Black & Nuvo Glitter Drops- Gold Sunset for my final touch.

 Not one stamp used on this card, only dies!

 I think this card will go to my sweet hubby, who is my #1 fan! ;)
He gives his support in many ways & I sooo appreciate him!
Nope, not a Valentine Card, just a "just because" card!

Have you thanked your #1 fan lately?
