Tim Holtz inspired background card #2

This is my second card using a Distress Oxide background made a little while ago for the challenge over at CVC. I made my first quite a feminine card that can be seen here and this one is definitely for a man and in my vintage collage style that I love to use. I just love the rusty patina colours.



If you have a moment please pop over to the CVC project blog to see more photos and to see how it came together.

Thanks for stopping by.

Fantastic piece Brenda! The patina style background is brilliant and I love how you have built your collage! This definitely is perfect for a male, the tones and elements are wonderfully vintage. What an amazing design for a Father's Day piece! hugs :)

Oh my goodness Brenda! This could not be any cooler! I love the layers without too much bulk, so much dimension without thickness. The background is a stunner! Shame on you for making me want to "get sick" and go home from work to play. LOL! Big hugs, Autumn

It is super lovely, Brenda, gorgeous combo/patina effect!

Fabulous Oxide background enhanced by a great collection of collaged elements . You make collaging look so effortless Brenda - like all the pieces were dropped and they just fell in the right places. Great idea too to create your own cabinet card frame .
