November MYSTERY BOX challenge with 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!
