All About Him for 'A Vintage Journey'

It's time for a new challenge at A Vintage Journey - the subject this time is 'All About Him'. I went to work with a couple of Tim's stamp sets; Roadtrip and Warehouse District.
I have also added other bits and piece's; salvage stickers, philosophy tag, alpha chips etc.

I adore that tyre track and used it on the backing paper, in the background of the main image and as the background for the Roadtrip text.
Tyre stamped in multicolour and roadtrip stamped and heat embossed over the top.

Background shadow stamping with tyre and compass

Philosophy tag coloured with DP and attached to twine.

There are lots more ideas from the team over at A Vintage Journey - don't forget to tell us how your project is Tim inspired.

I would like to play along at:

  11. Great make Nikki - The colors are so muted and soft but it still has that masculine feel you were looking for. Always difficult to make a project or card for a guy but you have done it beautifully.

    What a stunner of a male card! Love the vintage theme to the card. I honestly thought the backing and elements were printed as they look so perfect! I would LOVE to be able to make something like this!
