The Lost Generation

Inspired by MoJo Monday Sketch #194 and the Kraft Journal It's a Guy Thing Challenge, I created a a monochromatic card using this handsome image from the Artistic Outpost Gatsby plate.  I started out with intentions of using the Vintage Art Technique to add color to my image, but things got a little dark, so it's more like Vintage Art meets Burnt Edges!



All papers are from Graphic 45's A Proper Gentleman line.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Gatsby
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Distress Inks - Walnut Stain, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey
Card Stock - Kraft, Black
Other - Gems, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Non Stick Craft Mat, Ink Blending Tool, SAMJ, EK Success Scallop Punch, Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman PP

Additional Challenges - Come and Get It, Here Come the Boys, Creative Inspirations, Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes, The Crazy Challenge - Father's Day, Lexi's Creations - Man or Father's Day, Paper Cupcakes - Masculine, Craft Room - Anything Goes, Flourishes - Father's Day, LadyBug Crafts - all about Males,
