Hats Off Birthday!

Hello to all of you and we have an artistic treat for you at Artistic Outpost! This month it is a Designers Choice Blog Hop, so come on and hop along and see what everyone has done! Also a little reminder that we are close to the end of the August "Show Us Your AO Art," so hurry!
Using Tim's Cameo Frame to start and cut from kraft paper and stamped the Hats Background in Watering Can Archival, inked over with Antique Linen, spritzed with water and then shaded with Weathered Wood. A second frame was cut and the very edge cut away with an craft knife and then clear embossed. The Gentleman and Sentiment from Hat's Off were stamped in Black Archival and then cut apart/fussy cut and shaded in Black Soot. The background panel was inked over in Weathered Wood through the Harlequin stencil and shaded in black soot. This will be a birthday card for a man!
Thank you for visiting and have a lovely finish to the week.
