It is time for the new challenge at Frilly and Funkie and Jenny is hosting this time and is calling it Boy oh Boy!. She describes it this way:
"Create a vintage or shabby chic project with a man in mind. Let's see those male themed creations come to life."
I need a couple of birthday cards for some men in my family so the timing of this challenge was perfect.
I went pretty simple with this card letting papers from the Tim Holtz Dapper paper pad take centre stage. I have done a lot of distressing with my scissors and inking with Gather Twigs Distress Ink to make it look even more vintage.
I started with some card stock from my stash for the blank and added the panel of ticking. Then I embossed a piece of Recollections kraft card stock using a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Collage. Next came the numbers and ticking mini panels.
I cut the zig zag from a large paper and added it next topped with a strip of burlap. The ad panel followed along with the little fishtail ruler, also cut from the paper pad. The gentleman was fussy cut from the same page as the zigzag. Finally I added a pocket watch and some carved coconut shell buttons.
