Man of the House


Today at Thank God it’s Friday the theme is….

Men…

Please create your art work by using minimum one stamp which has something to do with men. A picture, their hobbys or their habits or some sentiments or everything you think of when talking about them, as long as it has to do something with MEN…. ;o)

A few weeks ago over at Created By hand the challenge was to use the house template. I absolutely fell in love with this template so of course it poped into my mind when the theme of men came up. Why? Because every man thinks he is the “man of the house” but we all know who really wears the pants J

The background is stamped using an architectural stamp embossed with Tim Holtz distressing powder. The Vitruvian Man in the center is stamped using brown ink and then burned…yes; my entire house smells like burned paper. And I had just taken a shower so my hair stinks…The windows are from Stampington & Co., also stamped in brown ink and then dusted with the same color to make them look a little older.

The two men are collage images from Paula’s Kit club.

The frame surrounding the house template is a stamp from Stampington & Co. stamped repeatedly to make a continuous line with brown ink on copper paper. Yes, the paper shimmers…once again the computers lack to sparkle frustrating my efforts LOL.

To finish it off I added two swirl paper clips in opposing corners.

I hope you enjoy!
Caro

Gorgeous! I hate that smell when I'm working... I always tend to burn a bit of something or other when I do soot stamping, but I do enjoy it!!
The house template was great, wasn't it? Hugs
