Quick Card Share from Mike Deakin

Hi Everyone - Mike here with a couple of quick A6 card shares for you today using two of the fantastic new release stamp sets.
The first is the "Drive Fast" stamp set teamed up with the older but very versatile "Script" stamp set with some cogs and gears for decoration borrowed from the "Fly High" stamp set also featured in the card below. The backgrounds were created using "Vodka Martini" & "Kingfisher Blue" acrylic metallic paints applied by hand with a piece of "Phat Foam".
All images were stamped using Jet Black Archival Ink. The "Script" stamp was stamped in the background using "Sepia" Archival Ink.

They're very quick and simple one layer cards but with the metallic paints in the background, it gives them some real depth with that lovely metallic lustre shining from the back!

Hope you like them!


  1. Love it. I always struggle with gents cards so these stamps make it easy. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Love these Mike, just my kind of male cards. I can't wait for mine to arrive so I can play :)

  3. The metallic shine of these paints goes well with the masculine type images in black and layering on to black card is perfect Mike. Two great cards. x

  4. Love them both Mike! The stamps are awesome!
