Visible Image Men's Collage

Hello everyone, it is Saturday again which means some Visible Image inspiration from me. 
I wanted to make a all round male card this week, so I reached for Men's Collage stamp and my gilding flakes. What do you think.....

I love grey and white together and think they are often overlooked as a colour combo so i decided to go with that colour. 
I stamped Men's Collage stamp onto a piece of acetate using StazOn and then mounted it onto a double sided adhesive punch sheet. 
I then applied the flakes to the reverse, I used my black Spectrum Noir and run around the edge to give it a defined edge. 
I then mounted it onto some white hammered card, and then mounted this with some foam tape onto some grey card I had in my stash. 
I cut a card blank to 5.25 x 4, and rounded off the two bottom corners. 
The seam binding I had was a pale grey, so I took my IG7 Spectrum Noir and coloured the ribbon so it matched the card. Once Dry I stuck it too the card and finished off with a knot. 
I then mounted the stamped section onto the card using some foam tape. 
I then stuck this all onto the card blank.....and taa-da all finished. 
A nice simple, and any occasion male card. 

I added this picture because I wanted to show you just how brilliant the stamp looks with the acetate & flakes. 

Items used- 
StazOn Jet Black Ink pad 
Hammered white card from PaperMillDirect 
Spectrum Noir pens in True Black & IG7
Punch Sheet, Grey card & Seam Binding from my stash.
