He's a Lumberjack

Hello lovely peeps

I bought these fabulous stamps a few weeks ago (Aall & Create set #463 'The Gentlemen')

 and was having a play swapping their heads around as the beardy guy is my favourite.

While digging through my stencils to see what I could use for the background I found 'wood pile' (Aall & Create #63) and suddenly thought 'lumberjack', lol.

The Lumberjack Song is one of my favourite Monty Python sketches, I've been humming it ever since I made the card (apologies to hubby - it must be driving him mad). 

In the famous sketch they are wearing check shirts so I added some horizontal stripes to the stamped image with a black fineliner and coloured it in with Copic markers/Graph'Its.

Next I covered the stencil with Vintage Photo distress oxide and spritzed it with water before placing it face down onto watercolour paper and pressing down all over. 

For the blue piece I inked up my craft mat with Faded Jeans distress oxide and spritzed with water before dragging the watercolour paper through it. Once that was dry I used the same technique as above with #71 Steam Cogs.

I die-cut the main image with the largest X-cut circle die and printed the sentiment off from my computer, layering up on red card.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-
