Dapper chap

Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
A quickie blog post to share this make with you...

I've been really enjoying experimenting with backgrounds using a mixture of Distress crayons, inks and paints
I'm really liking the new flip top lids for distress paints, they give you more control over the amount of paint to use...... a little bit really does go  such a long way!
I'm also loving the new Distress Splatter brush, it gives some really cool splatters to its great fun to use (my phone has a whole new look!)
I really wanted to use the "Dapper"Tim Holtz/Stampers anonymous stamp set
so I paired it up with one of my favourite stamps..... Wendy Vecchi/ Stampers Anonymous phrenology head stamp as they compliment each other perfectly!

Lots of Idea-ology Rub-ons, distress crayon colouring and lots of stitching
The hat, shirt and tie were coloured using distress markers a
the quote is from the Random quotes stamp set  
The tag is mounted onto a black cabinet card from Idea-ology and is stuck down using distress matt medium  
Thanks  so much for popping by....
As always feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate each and everyone

Right I so need to clean up the mess on my desk!
(that's the bit I don't like!)

Have a great week!
Bye for now
