Hope you are well.
For todays make I've used Sophisticated Gentleman from www.kennykstamps.
I printed him out on photo paper, cropped him and instead of coloring him the way I usually do I used my blending tool and Distress Ink walnut stain, vintage photo and black soot around the edges and a bit on top. I then printed him out again and colored just his face with my Prisma pencils and used a 3D tape to glue it on to the photo.
Then I used The Distress Collage Medium Vintage on top. It makes it look almost like an old photo.
The bow tie is made with a die but I don't remember what brand.
I've used a lot of black gesso both for backing papers and for the metal decorations. For the rusty looking papers and tags I've used kraft paper and acrylic paints from Deco Art and Distress Ink black soot.
The metal decorations are from Tim Holtz, Finnabair and stash
The faucet knob is from Tim Holtz and a favorite of mine. The star is from Finnabair, love these stars. Both colored with black gesso.
The rulers I've cut out from a Tim Holtz design paper. The tags are made with dies from TH and as you can see I've used my sewing machine (that doesn't happen very often, lol).
The sentiments 'tell your story' and '#lucky' are from TH, embossed in the color frayed burlap from TH/Ranger and with some black soot Distress ink on top.
The small frame on the bottom is chipboard from Tando Creative/Andy Skinner Industrial Elements and colored using Deco Art acrylic paint in the colors quinacridone gold and raw umber and Distress Ink black soot. The screws on top of it are metal decorations from Finnabair.
Thanks for looking
