Vitruvian Man

 











I'm on a roll today with this my second post, trying to get ahead for a change!  This card uses the image of Leonardo Da Vinci's Vetruvian Man from Katzelkraft Da Vinci plate.  It is stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and them matted onto purple and green card with all the corners rounded with a punch. According to Wikipedia the original is kept in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice so it's appropriate that I've used backing papers from Crafty Individuals Travels in Italy pad (the ones I've used are definitely Venetian inspired papers).  I've added some lovely fibre and silver squares from my stash, then a strip of green card with i-rock gems to finish off the outside.  Inside I've used paper from the same pad. The sentiment (Creative Expressions) is in SU Rich Razzelberry with background images from the Katzelkraft plate stamped in SU Cake Crumb, then again matted and layered on green and purple card and corners rounded.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Individuals - Simply square (CI papers)
Dude Time Doodles - Picture inspiration
Bearly Mine - Inside out
Card Ideas - Let's Hear it for the Guys

Do you remember when this used to be in the titles for World In Action! I used to think it was so naughty, showing all his accoutrements like that!

Fabulous male inspired card. That BP is perfect for the image.
