Sunday Stamper 201 - Man of the World

Evening bloggers.  Hope you have enjoyed the lovely weather today. I finished a 4 day working week feeling more tired than my normal 5 day working week so decided that today would be a play day.

Hels' has set 'man of the world' for this week's Sunday Stamper challenge.  Here is my entry:

I have used one of my favourite Tim Holtz stamp sets for this (although they are all my faves!).  I coloured the background using broken china distress stain and added a torn bit of kraft paper to the bottom. I stamped the largest stamp from the set in antique linen (can't really see it in the photo) and then the diagram stamp, pointed finger and 'admit one' in walnut stain. The gents (don't they look very handsome) were stamped in brushed corduroy onto creamish card stock.  Seam binding was coloured to match the tag. And tickets used to embellish the tag.

Really pleased with the end result.  Pop over to Hels' place to see what everyone else has created.
