"All About Him" at A Vintage Journey

Welcome! The new challenge theme at A Vintage Journey is "All About Him." For this card I tried some of the stenciling and masking techniques I learned both at Tim Holtz' blog and at A Vintage Journey. I'm enjoying trying new techniques on this vintage journey! Nearly every product I used is by Tim Holtz, with the exception of the gear dies, clock brad, "one way" sticker, Dad and rubber stamps on the background paper:

 I love vintage cardmaking for the fun and creative challenge; it's a nice change for me from my primary activity of making cards for our heroes through Operation Write Home. Most of these vintage type cards are too thick with embellies to qualify for OWH. They nestle in a shoebox until I decide how to use them! Thanks for visiting and I hope you're having fun on your own vintage journey!
