By the Tide Masculine Card

I was having some fun with my embossing tool.  Sometimes I'm into embossing and other times I try to avoid it. I guess it's a "mood" thing for me!  And today's card shows I was in the mood to emboss!  I embossed the background where I stamped the "Off the Grid" image.  And I also stamped the "gorgeous Grunge" splash and dots.  

The words in the small almost hidden panel are from the "By the Tide" set and they are stamped using Soft Suede.  It almost looks like they are embossed too.  

The front panel is done using the ferny looking embossed thing!  

To get the fun looking background colors I used my sponge and ink pads.  My cardstock is Very Vanilla and I first sponged on Daffodil Delight, then the Pistachio Pudding.  Next I used Coastal Cabana and then I lightly used some Pacific Point.  On the focal piece I used a lot more Pacific Point and I kept the Daffodil Delight and Pistachio Pudding to the middle around the sea fern.  

My splatters in the background were done using Pacific Point ink.  And for the tiny word panel I kept the sponging to the lighter colors.  The focal panel was set in place using Dimensionals and that was it!  Pretty easy, just a little time consuming.

Edited on 8-26-13: The original post title was "By the Sea Masculine Card"  The set is called "By the Tide".  Oops!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
