Dream card

Hi there everyone
Hope you are all enjoying this glorious sunshine, I certainly am even though there has been the odd rumble of thunder!
For my Katzelkraft blog piece today I shared this card. I think it would make a great Father's day card or masculine birthday card. Simon says Stamp and show "something for the Boys"  this week so I'm entering this into that too.

 To create the background I blended distress inks in Mustard seed, Barn door, Vintage photo and walnut stain. I stamped the corner image in Barn door too. The bright yellow adds a lovely depth to the colours! A spray of water adds the lovely "age" spots.

 To create the tile I cut mountboard to size and added 3 layers of Bronze UTEE. When the last layer was heated I stamped the Vetruvian Man into the soft UTEE.

To finish the card I mounted the tile onto black card and mounted it onto the background. I added these lovely letter tiles which really suit the image.
Hope you all have a lovely afternoon and a blessed week.

A fabulous card Neil, love it.
In answer to your question about the propeller on my tag, it came in a pack of white mount-board pieces from C&C quite a long time ago but it was when they were doing all the ecogreen shows. Hope that helps.
Have a great week.
Take care.

Neil, your card is just amazing! I love your background and I love your UTEE stamped Vetruvian Man even more! He really looks amazing! Did you use a rubber stamp and did you have to do anything to the stamp surface first to be sure it was not damaged by the hot UTEE? Your man is wonderful! I love the way it stands out on your card. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Wow Neil, this is gorgeous - fabulous colour scheme and subtle effect of the background, and the awesome UTEE effect too. It really suits the theme! I think Leonardo would be impressed.
