A Gentlenman's Choice

There's a new challenge at PanPastels UK Challenge.  This time around, the theme is "Anything Goes." I began with layering numerous shades of yellow and olive green PanPastels onto a white card stock panel.  The young lad from the Think and Wonder plate by Artistic Outpost was stamped over top of the prepared panel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The ledger image from the Emphemera Backgrounds plate by AO was also stamped with Gathered Twigs DI and distressed with Old Page Distress Ink.  The "Gentleman's Choice" image is from the Steampunk AO plate and was stamped on brick red card stock to add a bit of color to the card and then mounted onto a bottle cap.  Other embellishments added for texture include burlap, vintage buttons, twine, dyed cheese cloth, and Idea-ology items:  binder clip, pen nib and ticket.  My son-in-law will be the recipient of this card for his upcoming birthday!  Thanks so much for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Hello Yvonne
The additions of burlap and buttons is so perfect as they do not detract from your beautiful stamping, they add that little extra to the overall feel - your SIL is lucky to receive such an incredible card.
