Feeling Sentimental

No - I'm not feeling sentimental - it's the name of this fabulous free S-A-B stamp set.
Liz has mainly men/boys in her immediate family, so always needs male themes
for her cards - and this stamp set is ideal!

This is what I have made after class this afternoon -
The colour combo is simple - Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.
I used the Window Frame Collection Framelits to die cut  the frames 
after stamping the Penny Farthing image.
I tore around the edges of a piece of "Newsprint" DSP and  coloured the torn edges
using a dauber and Early Espresso ink pad.
I used the spritzing tool with an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker pen.
The sentiment is included in the stampset.
I used some Linen thread to fasten a knot through the (retired) bronze button.

 I am not sure whether it looks vintage and distressed,
or just plain mucky!!  What do you think?
