Sure the diamond plate is pretty obviously male. It's industrial, after all. But I know women who buy trucks and diamond plate is a practical thing even when it's chrome. But the riveted plates scream crazy quilt to me -- color in the "squares" and add some pen work stitching and patterns and you've got a quilt instead. Another angle on this texture is neon tie dye paper. Weird but it works because the texture become secondary -- sort of a girlz power thing. Back to the diamond plate again. I used Distress ink pads and did a gray background and tipped the diamonds in rust… to die for! Anyway, these are cool textures.
I just love these embossing folders, they are great for man themed/grunge/steampunk themed projects. The details are great and very realistic and are awesome to add metal like details to your projects!
