Card Chain Callenge - May

It's reveal day at Card Chain Challenge where this month 30 participants sent and received hand made cards. Mine went to Karolina this time.

From the options on offer I chose the theme of men in hats and the product and technique options of stencil and scoring, sticking to my usual CCC aesthetic of one layer.

I masked the gent on the stamped image but not the background so the stencilling goes over that bit of the image and the rays come directly out of his head. There's a charcoal pencil drop shadow going on and some silver gel pen on the corner swirls in the image.

What a great vintage gentleman image Joanne! Wonderful rays stenciling and how clever to mask the head so the rays continue onto the panel - and lovely in the blue white! Julia xx

I see we both went 'Men in Hats'! Love your bowler-hatted guy, what a geezer. I really like how you positioned the rays to make him the focal point of the whole design - so cool. Big hugs, Jo x

wow-you masked him with the tiny bowler lip? Impressed! Fascinated...Did you go over the skinny frame with a black pen to cover the rays?

Very cool look/effect!
