Vintage Men Challenge

This week the "Men" challenge continues over at JFF with "Vintage Men". I always find doing "Men" stuff a real challenge, the design team always have some great pieces to help us and this month we have Valerie of Bastelmania as gust designer with a fab piece. I cut a tag out of paper that has a great variation of backgrounds into all to do with USA (these do not show on the photo) I gave it a gesso wash and rubbed in some sepia and metallic rubs to tone down and vintage it. Used old book page pieces, stamped text, faux stitches and embossed stars. The images are from some paper I have had for a while (think I picked it up for about 20p) and it is called "Vintage Movie Stars". Have no idea what to expect next week from the "Men" month. Have a great week everyone (I think our snow is at last beginning to melt a bit, fingers crossed). Thanks for looking and the very kind comments.
Hugs All. XXX

Loving your tag and appreciating so much you entering when you find "Men" things difficult to do. Sorry I put you through this but hopefully it will give us a bank of ideas to work on when those male occasions come around.
Love how you toned down the paper and stamped on it etc. Glad you had those images to add to it as it has certainly come up with the theme perfectly.
Thanks for joining us at JFF with this lovely rendition of the challenge. Hugs, Neet xxx

Great stuff - I have those movie stars but am too tight to cut them up! Mine are in little cards and it tells you all about them on the back. I always do this - buy stuff then dont want to use it cos its too nice! duh.....
