Vintage for Artistic Outpost

Today I am showcasing the fabulous Hats Background and Hat's Off stamp sets from Artistic Outpost.
I was aiming for a vintage feel with a spotlight for added interest.
The background of the card has been coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and flicked with water and then a touch of stencilling added using the Harlequin Layering Stencil.
I have also added a lens with stamped image and remnant rubs for further interest. The background has been stamped with the Hats background stamp, set against an inked background flicked with water.
A spotlight has been added to the background for added interest and dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

A vintage delight indeed, Tracy! There are all kinds of wonderful dimensions to this card especially using that antique looking lens to highlight that handsome gent :) (is that a real optometric lens?) Sooo cool!! Fab card for AO!! XOXO-Shari
