Stampin' Chic sketch challenge no.2

Well, I'm cutting it very fine with this one!! This is my entry for the Stampin' Chic sketch challenge no.2, and also for Clare Curd's weekly challenge on the DoCrafts website.

The stamp is from CCSR new 'for him' range. I stamped it three times, on white card and two patterned papers, embossed and then cut out and pieced it together. I didn't like the colour of the trousers in the end so went over them with a brown brush marker.

Faux stitching added by piercing holes with a pokey tool and then a brown brush marker again.

Backing papers - CCSR Big One paper pack
Metal rimmed velum tag and black & white brads - Papermania
Ribbon - from stash
Card - local craft shop
Edges inked with black ColourBox fluid chalk
'Best Wishes' stamp also from CCSR.

Thanks for looking!!

What a great card. Love how you've used a marker over the patterned paper on the trousers. You can still see the pattern but it's subdued! Love it. Thanks for joining in the fun over on the stampin' chic blog. Love, Clare x
