Clothes Make The Man - Challenge #52 at Twisted Tuesday

In honor of Father's Day, the Twisted Tuesday Challenge #52 is to create a masculine project, the twist is we want to see clothes on your project!  The challenge can be found here.

I used the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man die cut for the main image; the background cardstock is from My Minds Eye.  Also used a TH flourish die cut, TH embellishments, and the ticket was stamped with a stamp from the TH Stampers Anonymous set called The Journey.

Anything with Wings!

I LOVE butterflies so can't resist entering this card into the Anything with Wings challenge at Eclectic Ellapu.  The challenge can be found here. 

The background was created using wet watercolor paper and Gouache Fine Touch Paints.  the edge of the panel was distressed with white paint.  The butterfly is a cheerylynn die cut, painted with copper acrylic paint.  When the background panel was dry, I used the paint directly onto the magenta stamp before stamping the floral image.
