November Mystery Challenge - by Liz and Amanda

Creative team members, Liz and Amanda,  challenge you to invent your own project using mystery box items.
To celebrate "Movember" and the MEN/BOYS in our lives, this month you must create a masculine layout OR a card using the following items, and post into the RES gallery by the end of the month for a chance to win a prize.
Your Mystery box ingredients this month:
* Chipboard  - LOTS OF DUSTY ATTIC in STORE now!
* Metal
* Distressing/Tearing
* Buttons
Please note: You may add some staples from your pantry (!!! - ie. ink, stitching, lettering), but please try to stick to the core ingredients as much as possible.
Here are our creations for some RES inspiration:
Amanda's layout:
The details:
Papers (all available in store now!):  Authentique- green check ; Bo Bunny, etc - yellow ; Bo Bunny ETC - teal ; Kraft cardstock ; Simple story - I handcut elements from the pages "noteworthy" & "remember".

Embellishments: Prima lettering, metal charm, metal chain (from stash), buttons

Chipboard: Dusty Attic - COGS and TWIGS (AND watch out for some chipboard specials, coming soon, YAY!)

SOME close ups...

Here's what I used on my chipboard... was lovely and messy! While the paint was still drying, I ran this glitz roller stamp over it to create texture.  More mists sprayed and rubbed (yes, I used my fingers!) all over the chipboard.  I also put dimensional magic on the twig to make it stand out a bit more!

AND LIZ has outdone herself this month with 2 amazing cards!

Thanks a million card:
