Dapper Gent

Good morning fellow crafters. As it's Tuesday it must mean it's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz, where we aim to show you that making cards for the men in your life is easier than you think.
This week week our theme is -


Lots of scope there I think, here is my card for the DT.

I've used a NEBUS stamp set that I picked up on holiday last year in Cromer, Norfolk.
It's a Papermania one from their Dapper Gent collection. I also bought some of the matching papers so I used one of them for the jacket and the shirt was stamped on some yellow in the stash. I paper pieced the jacket and shirt but decided to use a piece of ribbon and tied it just like a proper tie instead of the stamp from the set. I also used some real buttons rather than the stamped ones, but as I hadn't any in the colour I wanted I used a brown Copic to colour some small pale blue ones. I popped the breast pocket, collar, lapels and the finished jacket up on pads for more dimension. The finished image was mounted on a piece of blue card, then onto a white base card, the sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

OK, now it's over to you. For more inspiration check out the rest of the DT's fab creations and why not join in.
