Man oh Man challenge for Visible Image

Last week was my final week at Visible Image, they are focusing on image stamps for coloring right now and it was time for me to go.  I will continue to support them and cheer them on and they continue to grow and grow. It has been nothing but a positive experience to work with such an amazing creative couple like Helen and Mark, and also the wonderful and talented (and slightly crazy!) teammates I had on the design team! They are so creative and talented, I can't wait to see the new projects they dream up for all the new stamps to be released.

But I had made this card earlier last month for their challenge so I thought I'd share it here. I just love the distinguished gentleman image I found and I made a stamped background for him using the Grunge Harlequin stamp. I stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, also using that to make a light background color with my blending tool. I used the gear and clock stamps from the Time After Time set in Jet Black Archival Ink and stamped them randomly around the page.

To finish off the card I edged everything in Black Soot Distress Ink and added some fun paper cord as a frame. I love how my grungy masculine card turned out...perfect for Father's Day.
