I'm on a real stencil kick lately and I knew right away which 'men' I wanted to use for this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Of course Tim Holtz was the first man to come to mind, so I went with one of his most excellent sentiments and the cracked background stamp. But the image of the man leaping? It's a stencil from Small Studio Productions. She doesn't have these right now but Ginny is a great source for funky stuff and I like checking back @ her shop frequently. She ships fast and she ships pretty, and if you buy online you know how nice that is.
I used scattered straw, aged mahogany, vintage photo distress inks on the tag and then hit the whole thing with a Versmark pad and clear embossing powder . I used a bit of Espresso paint dabber on the word charm that says "hope" and attached with ribbon from stash. Feels like I'm running behind this week so I'm glad to get this one in on the early side.
Thanks for your visit! Hope you're having a good one.
