When my son saw this card, he really liked it (usually he could care less). So, I guess it's a good "guy" card.
This technique is called camouflage, that was taught at a recent Stampin' Up! regional conference.
Very Vanilla CS 3-3/4 x 5
Sahara Sand Ink Pad
Old Olive Ink Ink Pad
Always Artichoke Ink Pad
Soft Suede Ink Pad
Rubbing Alcohol in spritz bottle
Jumbo Eyelets and Crop-A-Dile
Always Artichoke card stock (8-1/2 x 5-1/2)
Crumb Cake card stock (5-1/4 x 4)
Step 1: Using ink pad, cover Very Vanilla card stock completely with Sahara Sand
Step 2: Scrunch card stock between hands in both directions
Step 3: Open card stock
Step 4: Ink up paper with Old Olive ink pad. Leave some areas uncovered
Step 5: Spritz with alcohol and scrunch lightly, open carefully
Step 6: Ink over Always Artichoke ink pad
Step 7: Ink over with Soft Suede ink pad
Step 8: Spritz again lightly with rubbing alcohol
Step 9: Turn card stock face done and run Bone Folder over the back of card stock
Step 10: Allow to dry
Step 11: If you feel you need more color, add what you need using either a sponge or ink pad.
Spritz again and allow to dry
