A Man Among Boys

A quick post tonight! This monochromatic card is for the new challenge at Make My Monday. The theme for April is Men and Boys and this week we are to create a Vintage project. Green dyed brown paper bag paper was distressed and torn and layered to a dark brown card base. The focal image from the Generation Redux plate by Artistic Outpost was stamped with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and matted with dark brown card stock and layered to the card front over torn pieces of a vintage book page. The vintage car, also be AO, is from the Great Gatsby plate and is stamped with Peeled Paint DI as well, trimmed and mounted with dimensionals. The sentiment and Gentleman's choice circle are from the SteamPunk plate by AO. Embellishments include a die cut tag by Studio 18, a TH Philosophy tag, burlap and three vintage buttons. Thanks so much for stopping by. Yvonne

Hi Yvonne
Do you know that this is one of my all time favourite books. I so wish I had a First Edition - a girl can but dream lol.
Stunning use of the AO stamps. I really should get this set, shouldn't I.
