I used stamps from Gatsby by Artistic Outpost to create this masculine card. I like the monochromatic color palette of brown tones. I used Espresso ink for all the stamping. The words are a little darker because I clear heat embossed them. I like to do that for verses. It just intensifies the color and adds a crispness to the words. All the patterned papers are from Graphic 45, " A Proper Gentleman". A perfect match for the stamps! I used dark brown mats to frame them all. I started this card with the man image and car. I found the cork frame in my collection of bits & pieces. It was cut with Spellbinders S4-308 Labels One SM #4 & 5 (#1 being the smallest). I added a touch of color with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. Have you tried the new Distress Stains? I love how easy they are to use for coloring backgrounds. It worked great on the cork. A lot quicker than rubbing Distress ink onto it! My final touch was the little checked bow tie....really a tiny bow!!! That's my favorite part of the this card!
