A Proper Gent

Good Morning Crafters!

How many of you find it tricky to make cards for the men in your life, I know I stuggle, so today I thought I would share a little masculine inspiration.

I have used one of the box frames, and covered it with parts of the Bo Bunny "Somewhere in Time" Keepsake and Elegance 12 x 12 papers.  The edges are distressed with a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The sentiment and waistcoat are from Woodware "The Waistcoat" stamp set.  The sentiment is stamped with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide and embossed with clear embossing powder.  
You can create an excellent ghosting effect by spritzing the stencil with a little water and laying it over your stenciling image. 
I stamped the waistcoat with Cornflower Archival Ink on to a background I made with the distress oxides and a stencil, and added highlights of White gelly roll pen.

Keep on Crafting.
