A Proper Gentleman


Hi Lisa here today, with my weekly share on the Artistic Outpost Blog. This week, I'm sharing a card I created using the new Hat's Off stamp set along with the Generation Redux stamp set and Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Flourish Star Pattern Die and Pennant Dies.

I stamped the gentleman from the Hat's off stamp set in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, masked the image and repeatedly stamped the background using the collage of the 2 gentlemen from the Generation Redux stamp set being careful to only ink the background portion.  I die cut the stamped panel with Oval dies, sponged the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and layered on a Black oval die cut.

To add a bit of texture to a few of the card stock and pattern paper panels, I die cut the largest die (border) from Flourish Star Pattern Die.

There's still a few days to play along with the Artistic Outpost Show Us your AO Art Challenge. Click here for more details.

Be sure to stop back on Wednesday, for the Artistic Outpost DT Monthly Blog Hop!

Fabulous! I love the almost graphic background created with the dies, it really makes that gentleman pop! Stunning design!
