Men's Fashion

Morning all.
How are you coping with the heat wave here in the UK? Moi, not too good but at least I can hideaway in my craft room without felling too guilty! We had a good downpour last night so the tubs are filled and there is a definite fresher feel but the temps are said to be climbing again by the weekend, urgh. Still Wimbledon got through 2 weeks with only one shower and a roof closure and that was 'cos of the lateness of the match starting! Can't say I've seen such a dry fortnight in a long time.
Any how down to business. We've a new challenge for you over at Cardz4Guyz. This time our theme is :-


Here is my inspiration for you using Docrafts Dapper Gent stamp set.

I used the colours from Less is More, but did you know there were so many different olive greens!
I used quite a few for this, DP, Copics, DI and Memento!
I started by rummaging through my DP stock, found some check for the jacket but struck out on the check for the shirt so had to create my own using Tombow tangerine pen and a light olive Copic on white card. The tie was some yellow ribbon coloured with a dark olive Copic. I just happened to have a couple of tiny olive green buttons in the stash and the whole jacket was stamped on the DP with Olive Grove Memento before fussy cutting and edges inked with Crushed Olive DI. I even stamped the sentiment banner using the same Memento Olive Grove and created my mount by colouring the edges of a white panel with the olive Copic.
OK, that's about it from me but pop over to the Cardz4Guyz site for more fashion ideas!

    As for this weather, urghhh, the heat hates me! I've had balloons for ankles for about a month now, having a sitting down job doesn't help, I feel them growing as the day goes on! Luckily it's raining and has been overnight so should bring some cooler weather today :) xx
