Off the Edge at The Male Room

When I saw the challenge at the Male Room was "off the edge" I knew I wanted to use this technique. Take a page from a book and stamp onto it and then tear around the image so that it looks like it is going off the edge of the page.

I painted the image using aquatints and threw some pens at it for a bit of a grunge male look. The background I am sad to cover up so much as it really turned out nice. I used aqua pens and metallic aqua tints with glycerine and then ran through an embossing folder.

The finishing touch is my go to die for male cards from Swedish House Crafts.
