Make My Monday - Week 44 - Vintage

The theme over at Make My Monday is continuing with Men and Boys but this week is VINTAGE.  For my card I took a piece of kraft card to make an A5 blank and covered the front with some scrapbook paper from my stash showing bicycles.  Sponged round the edges with Old Paper DI.  I sponged a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Resist with DI and then put it through my die cutting machine in an embossing folder called Work Shop by Couture Creations.  I stamped the image - Bicycle by Darkroom Door - onto cream card using Walnut Stain DI and then sponged colour on using Barn Door, Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen DI.  This was torn round the edges and matted onto a piece of kraft card.  A piece of red card was also embossed with the Work Shop folder and inked with Walnut Stain.  The whole piece was then assembled with the addition of metal die cuts using Sprightly Sprockets and then putting through with the Work Shop embossing folder and then stained with Promarkers.  The sentiments are various words from my stash stamped in Walnut Stain and clear embossed - again torn round the edges and sponged with Barn Door DI.

I'm also entering this into Joanna Sheen's challenge "It's a man's world".
