Wherever I lay my hat that's my home

Today I am showcasing the fabulous Hat's Off and Hats Background stamp sets from Artistic Outpost.
I created a card with shadow frame, I have seen quite a few of these around in blogland and thought I would give one a try and I am really please with how it turned out. The background has been coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and flicked with water to add an aged vintage feel to my piece.

I added the hats and bike riders to the edges of my frame embossing them with clear embossing powder and I stamped the Hats Background to the centre of my frame. The text is printed on my computer and I added HAT to the centre for added interest.
These images are perfect for a masculine card and I know I will be using them frequently.
I added a metal hook, top hat embellishment and natural twine to embellish.
I also decorated the inside of my card to give a professional finish.

Hope you like my creation for today! Tracy x x x
