Make It Masculine

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today!  The MFT Design Team has been challenged to Make It Masculine for the monthly Creative Challenge.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the team came up with HERE on the MFT Blog

I was inspired by a project Barbara created a while back and she shared a "kit" with me, so I was able to recreate it to make a Father's Day Gift for my dad (with a coordinating card).  Thanks, Barbara.  :) 

I went with a bright color combo and added what seemed like a zillion layers of paint and texture to the frame.  

I painted the frame with several colors of paint and then added texture with the Chicken Wire Stencil and Molding Paste.  Each component was stamped with a variety of stamp sets (all listed below in the inlinkz block).

I rubbed Inka Gold on the keys so they matched the hardware used for the "key hooks".

I included a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Fathers.

I also made a coordinating card with many of the same materials and techniques.

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team came up with for this fun challenge.
