Dangerous Mustache

Good day,

This is an experiment into dangerous mustaches and layering. The main image is by Brett Weld which I colored and then used a coy water pen to give a more sketched look. The background is stamped with several different stamps and stencils.

I then added a Tim Holtz die cut (new gift for Christmas) behind the figure using my craft knife to cut round the figure. I mounted the image on black to make it stand out then on a stamped background that I had half misted to vary the look of the writing. The tittle is cut out of an old dictionary.

I am sneaking this into Left of center challenges - lots of layers.
and Anything but cute - ring out the old bring the new (new die cut.)

This is fantastic...it fits the "lots of layers" challenge and is also LOC so it's perfect for the Left of Center Challenge this week. Thanks for playing! Wendy (DT)

Love how this came together and it is in a perfectly masculine colour palette. Thanks for joining us at Anything But Cute.

Great card, EE - he (and his moustache) do indeed look very dangerous! Lovely colours and layering too.

Julie :o)

The Brett stamp is brilliant, he almost looks a bit menacing and I love the trellis die cut that you added.
