Calming challenge

Black and Grey and perhaps even masculine ???  That is the challenge over at Dynamic Duos.  First thoughts were for a sympathy card but that seemed a little too obvious so I decided to work on the masculine part as well.
I love the latest look of the blackboard technique, so decided to make a blackboard easel card. 
I have always loved the Keep Calm posters and was dreadfully disappointed when Australia did not get the SU Keep Calm stamp set so I had to settle for another brand.

Stamps:  JustRite Just Keep Calm; SU Woodgrain
Card:  SU Basic Gray and Basic Black
DSP:  SU Howlstooth and Scaringbone
Ink:  Versamark; SU Basic black marker
Tools:  White embossing powder

So there we are - I think it will fit into the masculine card genre.

Thank you Karen for choosing this card as a Dynamic Darling
