Another great cue word over at Casology - 'vintage.' I have to say I'm not a big fan of vintagey things (except wine of course.) I tend to envision old fashioned lace, chintzy fabric and a musty smell! So it was definitely a challenge to create something with a vintage theme and yet keep it clean and simple:
I thought the monocled man from WMS 'My Kind of Guy' would be perfect for this one. I love the old fashioned sentiments in this set. I kind of did some masking in a mask, if that makes sense. I masked off a larger rectangle, then used a square mask with distress inks to mask lots of little squares within it. I then added a little crystal effects to his monocle to make it shiny.
Simon Says Stamp has a masculine challenge on their Wednesday challenge blog at the moment so I'm going to link my monocled little man over there too!
Thanks for popping by,
