Dapper Men

One of the lovely things about joining in with challenges is discovering new techniques, or thinking out of the box. The Saturday Workout theme for this week is faux linen. I Lightly sanded a piece of glossy card, then brayered over it, and then sanded again to make the linen effect.

Then I stamped on the waste paper from cleaning the brayer. This has a streaky look, and paler shades of the same colours. This is 4x4 in size.

Stamps : Paper Artsy Mini 3

Inks : Adirondack Rueberry, Cranberry and Eggplant
