Hats off to You!

Nancy is hosting the fun "Layer it Up" challenge at the Frilly an Funkie challenge blog.  She described it as "create any type of vintage or shabby chic project featuring multiple layers."   I have had this fantastic stamp set with the cool masculine image that I have been wanting to layer up for quite awhile and this was the perfect opportunity to play around with the image.

I started by stamping this image multiple times using black ink.  I then colored and cut the pieces out to layer.
Of course I had to have a card base to use as my background and just happened to have one of the new Tim Holtz layering stencil on hand to use in the background.  

I sponged a mix of Antique Linen with a touch of vintage photo left over on my sponge. :)  that gave me a nice soft background to frame out my image. 

I added some of the new Idea-Ology Tissue tape in the background for accents along with some bits and bobs of metal. 

Don't forget to play along with us for a chance to win a  $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

Thanks for stopping by!
