One For The Boys

Hi there, and welcome to my two new followers.........Cynthia and Lesley, thank you for joining me.

I'm here today with a card that I've made for the challenge over at Stamping Sensations which  is called 'One for the Boys.'  I'm quite late with my card this month but it's a challenge that I always love to take part in, so better late than never as they say;)  Here's my card:


The stamps that I've used on this card are by Flonz  Craft and are from a set called True Gentleman.  I think the stamps lend themselves perfectly for a Vintage Masculine card.

I started my background by adding Distress Tea Dye ink with Ink Dusters then randomly stamping Clocks and Hats.  I stamped the Gentlemen and the other focal images using Ground Espresso to give me a nice dark image, without using black. I then used the Tea Dye ink as a water colour to paint the dogs and the Gentleman's suit on the left.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a lovely day x

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Still plenty of time Sandra so don't panic !

These stamps do indeed lend themselves so well to vintage style masculine cards and I really like the delicate background you have created which compliments the dapper gentlemen perfectly.

Many thanks for joining us again at Stamping Sensations challenge.
