Gentlemen

Here is my ATC made for this weeks MAMMA challenge. The theme was 'Men'.
I reprinted the background paper to less than 50% of it's original size as I liked the design but it was too big for an ATC.
I stamped the 'real gentlemen' image with Stazon onto a kitchen work surface sample (part of an extensive collection from a local DIY store when I couldn't make my mind up about what worktop to have in the kitchen!). I like the effect of the stamp as it has turned out with a 'mottled' look instead of just perfectly flat and smooth.

  4. What a good idea, I've never thought of scanning in to reduce for ATCs. Mmm... off to look at some stamp images now I think.

    Oh, great card too BTW!

  5. It's fab! I like the mottle look and doesn't the image look great with the grain of the sample showing through?!
