Times Gone By in Black and Gray!

"Times Gone By" is the stamping challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and as always, there is a prize! Now this is a theme that most of us love and can be interpreted in so many ways! We Fashionettes would love for you to join us on this new adventure! Stop by and visit FSC for inspiration and to see what my "Stamping DT Sisters" are up to!   Gingersnap Creations GC124 is looking for Black and Gray, so no big surprise that we are headed over there!  The Three Muses Challenge is Vintage Collage Memories and I will be entering there for the first time! 
For my contribution all stamps are from Artistic Outpost. The Gatsby collection is one of my favorites and I thought it was just perfect for "Times Gone By." The handsome gentleman, champagne bottles and sentiment were stamped on white using Archival Jet Black, heat set and shaded with gray!  I stamped the car in craft black on gray and then clear embossed.  The bottles and car were fussy cut, so fun!  I cut photo corners from Tim Holtz ATC die on black and then shaded with white craft ink and clear embossed.  This gives it a nice gray color!  Added some brads that I distressed.  The black panels around the gentleman, sentiment and designer paper were also distressed to give that extra aged feel.  I used the "clipped corners" technique from the Technique Junkies for my main image.

Dot, one of the DT at FSC, is having a little GIVEAWAY once she reaches her 50th follower.  Stop on by Dot's Dabbles and have a look for yourself. 

Thank you for stopping by and I really hope you will join us at FSC!

Inks:  Archival Jet Black, Stampin Up Basic Black, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Black and White Craft,

Hi Terry,
There has been something very familiar about this card, and I've finally worked it out...it reminds me of the Great Gatsby! Very classical, and so stylish. Great card
Thankyou for mentioning my "giveaway" Terry.

Stunning male card Terry, the images are just fabulous. Sue C x

CuddlyBunny said...

Terry this piece is simply fantastic! I love the black and white! Beautiful!

One question ... when you describe your white as inked with "White Craft" ... is that a brand or style or what? I've been trying to find a good WHITE ink for stamping/edging ... every one of them just disappears. :(

I jogged through your most recent posts as well ... I like everything of course but am especially impressed with the pink rose card and the perfect distress tag ... WOW! :)

I hope you've had a fabulous weekend my friend! It snowed here! Yay! :)
