It's great to see the This Thursday Challenge up and running again.
Here is my entry to this weeks theme of 'Whiskers'
It is slightly lighter than this photo shows - more like a crushed velvet deep wine colour. I wanted it to look very vintagey and old and it does n natural light.
I inked the background, stamped and embossed a page of prose.
I used my flash for this photo - so you can see the details better, but it is nowhere near this bright in daylight, but just a shade lighter than the darker photo above
I decided that the page looked a bit 'plain' so used a T.H. clock mask to add a bit more interest.
I painted a vintage image and tore it and adhered it to the background - then darkened it with re-inker black until I got it the shades I liked.
I feel a bit foolish now - as the other entrants I have looked at are cute animals with whiskers.
Never mind - I love this very whiskery Victorian man - he looks very serious - and needs his moustache to tickle his nose and make him smile - don't you think?
