Debonair !


I was so happy with my altered acrylic stand made 
during the Webster's Pages 12 days of Christmas crop 
( taught by Iris Uy
that I had to do another one with a masculine take , since the opportunity arose . 


This pic of our debonair friend  from our church 
was taken during last year's year end party . 
Their theme was Flash Forward & 
everyone was supposed to come dressed as  
who they would dream to be in 10 years' time . 
One of this young man's dream is to become a top investor 
& A  is in fact in the financial industry at the mo. 


I had fun using some silver & gold mixatives on a Tim Holtz compass mask here . 
The paper is G45's A Proper Gentleman line 
which was perfect for my purpose . 

I also took the opportunity to use up some Tim Holtz hardware 
- game spinners , metal corner , word key ...
My first batch of G45 masculine cards were well received & all used up ,
so I also took the time to make some more . 
For this card here , the sentiment  is by Creative Imaginations . 
I also cut out a Cuttlebugged star with some GM Tattered Leather smooshed on it . 
Love the effect !
