Vintage Men – Card

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  I have made a card for the Just For Fun Challenge this week.

I have used a piece of backing paper for my card but I can promise I did get inky!!!


For the main image I stamped the time man, or otherwise known in this house as “Gary”, onto coated card stock and then stamped around the edges with some ferns, roses and cogs, following the theme of the backing paper. I dabbed on some d. ink over the image to take away some of the whiteness.

I also made a small tag to go with this card.


That’s about it from me.  I am off for a cuppa!

Best Wishes Florence.

  3. Ooh, I must go and find Gary as I like him so much. What a fabulous card, as always I must add. I really love how you have done this one Florence. The way you have carried the theme from the backing to the main image, the dimensional look with the cogs and that adorable bird. Great card, great tag – fab work!

  6. Florence, you are so talented. I love what you’ve done here. Totally ingenious and creative. I really like the card and the tag you made along with it. Very well done!

  7. How did I miss this I was sure I commented !!!! Where did you get the name Gary from !!!!doesnt look anything like a Gary !!! Or is that the point . Two great cards Gary and the bird are great images and you have showcased them beautifully.


    1. Hey up Marie! lol! Ok, This goes back a few posts. I think this guy on this stamp looks like Gary Barlow. There are some people who will remain nameless!, who are HUGE fans of Take That and who are incredibly fond of GB and say they don’t think this image does look like him. Isn’t that right Paula from Ephameras Attic! LOL! Another blogging friend, Alison from Crafty Trog thinks it could be GB with a fake beard and tash. So I now think lovingly of this image as Gary!
      Lovely to hear from you.
      Take Care,
      Florence xx
