WEEK 7 - Billie & Monika background - HARLEQUIN BG & Masculine Theme + PART II Goodies & Cards from my crafty friends all around the world

As I mention you on this post, that I make a challenge between me and  Billie Anderson from Ink On My Finger this time is our WEEK #7, I have choosen the theme this time, we will challenge to make a Card using Diamond/Harlequin Background and Manly theme

For my card I choose this Fork and Spoon Stamp from Hero Arts because I think it is great also for manly card theme.

How I made my card:

1.Sponged the Diamond Stencil on the black paper with clear ink pad and gave silver glitter embossing powder on it and embossed it.
2. Sponged again the Diamond Stencil with grey distress ink. Tore the paper and adhere to the black paper with diamond silver embossed.
3. Stamped the image on a piece of black paper and embossed it with silver glitter embossing powder.
4. Distressed the edge of a piece of Design Paper and distressed also the main image paper.
5. For the Sentiment I stamped on a vellum paper and embossed it with black embossing powder.

Can you see the silver glitter embossing powder on that black paper? It looks wonderful in reality :)

One more picture of the card:
