Impression Obsession DT Challenge: I Love You Man!

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a masculine project. Here's my card:

I started off with a background done using Wednesday's tutorial over at Splitcoast, Stamped Masking. Over that, I layered a few different design element stamps, then sprinkled embossing powder and heated from the back side for texture and a little sheen... I used gold and one called Japanese Lacquer, which is a mix of red and black.

The grunge map was stamped onto a gel print from my stash, using Stazon ink.

Here's the clear set I used - it's one of my new ones from the summer release, Grunge Map!

Other stamps I used: Passport Collage, Vintage Honeycomb, Slash Border, Sketchy Chevron Border; Globe Die
