DYSU Challenge #76 - Man, oh Man!

 Our sponsors this week:
$15 Gift Certificate
Winner's Choice of 7 Images
Winner's Choice of 5 Digital Stamps (not from Sets)

My assignment image this week was from Wonderstrange.  They are a new sponsor for us, so it took me a bit of time to consider how I wanted to portray
 this stately gentleman.

A portrait was exactly what I decided upon!
I paper pieced his jacket and hat, and attached a "belt" with the clock tied onto it with black twine.

You can better see the background mat here:
I ran the black cardstock through my Cuttlebug with the Paper Studio embossing folder, "Croc Texture", and then clear heat embossed the entire thing to give it the masculine look of crocodile hide.

I felt that this would still make a fine Father's Day card, since Dad's everywhere truly are seen as the "man of the hour"!
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
