Tattered Lace Dies George and Air Mail

Afternoon crafting friends , dull with wet  here , just the weather I hate , roll on spring time !

My first card (I'll probably give to my hubby ) features a tattered lace die George , he is so smart in his suit . I've coloured the die with promarkers  and add white gel pen to the tie . The stylish London background is printed from a my craft studio cd rom called Art Deco . The outer matting squares are Sue Wilson noble dies double pierce squares , I wouldn't be without these , just the ticket for large square cards. The stamped sentiment was part of a set free with issue 165 of cardmaking and paper craft magazine .

challenges entered : cd Sunday challenge : make it male 
oolala creations : for a man or a boy 

My second  card is cheerful and bright  , the die is airmail by tattered lace , I've cut it out in white card then coloured it with alcohol markers with a touch of orange stickles on the flower stamens .
The paper is tattered lace with some of the flowers coloured in orange , the border is very old stash
( I'm such a hoarder ) . The stamp is inkadinkadoo.

Love your first card, it's ages since I've used any of those deco images from MCS - they are brilliant and with George he just adds that touch of dimension. Thanks so much for sharing with us at OLL. Lynn x DT

The masculine design is fabulous. Love everything here, beautifully coordinated colors and layers, the cityscape and the man go well together. Your second card has the feeling of spring with its soft colors, it's very sweet and timeless.
