Man about Town

Today's card is a masculine card 
The background is on glossy card, with alcohol inks and the cling film technique.
The London scene has been stamped with black Staz On.
I stamped the 'Man/Boy' image, water-coloured him and fussy cut him out.
He is on foam to give a little dimension.
I have used black embossing paste and a stencil for the main chevron effect on the left,
The smaller horizontal chevrons and the sentiment have been stamped 
and embossed with clear EP.
