Vintage masculine

The JustRite challenge is to do a vintage masculine card.  I am ok with distressed, but I need lots of practice with vintage.  I see so many cards that make use of several stamps, often randomly placed - combining with shading. I am certainly open to suggestions.  The DP is Recollections, and the Beached Boat was in my digi file - the label says Nina Jay.  I inadvertently left many of my JustRite behind for the summer, but I do have this Happy Everything set.  I added portions of one of the Attic Collection stamps (EK Success).

This is lovely! The distressed paper is a nice touch! Thanks for sharing with us at JustRite Inspiration ;-)

Nice Masculine card -- I sooo want that Happy Everything set still!!! I think many of us struggle with vintage, and yet for others it just comes naturally. Sigh!

Very nice masculine card. I like the twine with this image, and the distressing looks great to. I struggle with masculine cards and a vintage feel as well. So much easier for me to create a lacy/doily look for ladies :) I think you did well with the challenges though, and thanks so much for joining us at Hugs, Kelly
