Gent's Waistcoat

Just a quickie - cos it's just tooooooo hot. I know we shouldn't complain about the nice weather, but sometimes, well, it's just too much!

This is an entry for three challenges I love promarkers - Challenge 21 - Stripes, Cup CakeCraft Challenge - 97 Sketch and One Stop Craft Challenge 87 - Distressing. The stamp i've used is another old one (it might still be available) it's Funstamps 'Gent's Waistcoat'. Chosen because of the stripes theme and coloured with promarkeres, I'm still learning the technique, but there are lots of useful tutorials on You tube. All the other stuff is from my stash. Not sure why i chose to do the front in blue and everything else in brown tones. I'm not very good at choosing a basic palette and sticking to it. The strap at the side I'm particularly pleased with, it's just a trimming that's been coloured and then distressed, which has given it a leathery look to go with the belt idea.

Thanks for stopping by. All comments and suggestions gladly received.
