numbers and men !

Hi All ,
For this card i used the faux leather technique, covering a piece of shiny card with masking tape in little bits and then colouring it over with vintage photo.  All the stamps are from creative expressions travel set. I stamped up the Eiffal tower in chocolate archival ink. the background was distressed with spiced marmalade and vintage photo with other images being stamped up in spiced marmalade and vintage photo.A Tim Holtz tag " Wander 6839" was added to chocolate ribbon and the imagine metal work was coloured using Tim Holtz re-inkers. Hope you like the card i had fun making it. Now to see if i can link up .......!!!!!
bye for now xx


  1. Hi Mandy! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week! I think your "Men Only" piece is wonderful! Love the Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo combination on your background and stamped images, etc. The chocolate ribbon is also a great touch! <3 Candy

  4. Very nice, love that faux leather look. And what a super vintage look you achieved with the background stamping and sponging. That's a great Paris stamp too! So glad you joined in the fun with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
