He Was A Man’s Man

Oh how I struggle with anything that has a masculine theme which is exactly why I needed to participate in Tag Tuesday’s challenge (Kard Krazy), the theme being “Men”. The upside, as I have so few male orientated stamps it does make it a simple task to select a stamp – you see there is always a silver lining!

The majority of the stamps used are from Oxford Impressions April In Paris set but there is also a beautiful script stamp from Prima. The tag I repeatedly sprayed with homemade inks, a touch of walnut ink and some copper spray ink. The scrap of fabric which slightly overlaps the tag is some fabric which I rusted with Crafty Notions Rusting Powder (available from The Altered Element).

    That’s a gorgeous tag, Lynne! I love that it has so many layers. I hear you on the selecting task when you have too many stamps to choose from. Even though it’s wonderful to have a lot, sometimes it’s just good to have not such a large variety of one theme.
