I was asked to make a male card for someone who was off on their adventures, a sort of gap year at retirement age!!
I used my collection of urban paper and stamps from Do Crafts, along with my hot air balloon stamp from Clarity Stamps.
I matted the squares onto dull looking mirri board, I felt the really shiny stuff just did not work for this card, each square has been distressed with ink.
The hot air balloon is paper pieced and the gentleman is decoupaged, both have glossy accents on them. I have also coloured the gentleman's sleeves, cuffs and binoculars with promarkers.
This would also make a good Father's Day card.
Hope you like it!!
