Masculine Monday #23

For this week's Masculine Monday card I again went for a CAS card.
I also made it a one layer card, did a masking technique and kept the
color scheme to one color.

I recently ordered the Mixed Drinks stamp set from Stampin' Up!
and knew that the first stamp I would use would be the beer mug.
I stamped it onto the card base first and then covered it up with some
masking paper. Next I sponged on some tumbled glass, broken china 
and chipped sapphire distress inks and then removed the mask.
If you've never done masking before, the moment you remove the 
mask is so cool!! 

I'm playing along with the following challenges:

Seize the Birthday - One Layer Card

Cards in Envy - You're the Man
