Vintage Guyz

Good morning my crafty friends. 
My second post of the day is for the new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week our topic is -

VINTAGE

Mmm, not my favourite subject but I put my thinking cap on and remembered a card by Jen Nelson on the LOTV site. I thought it was just my version of vintage so I took her inspiration and came up with this little number.


Of course it uses one of my many LOTV stamps, this time it's called Man's Best Friend. I stamped then heat embossed in white. The parcel was a panel of kraft inked with vintage photo DI and over stamped with a couple of franking stamps from Artemio. I splashed a bit of water and roughed up the edges to create a more vintage feel.
I added a bit of dark brown Copic pen and white pencil to the image and left it at that. A couple of tags from a LOTV set were attached to the string to finish the parcel effect. The panel was then stuck to a black base card.

OK, that's about it, pop over to the main site and see what the rest of the team have come up with for your inspiration and join us. Don't forget it has to be for a MALE person, young or old.

I shall enter the following challenges -
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Crazy for CAS - Splatters ( I did splatter the background with water!)
Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Turn up the Heat
Thanks for stopping by.
