Sunday Stamper challenge - Numbers

Well as Father's day is almost upon us in the UK and because I'm still in my masculine phase I decided to make a tie :D  Don't seem to see many men wearing them these days but my Dad always wears one if he's going somewhere ' important'... which could just be the pub... or shopping with Mam but he does suit his shirt and tie wherever he is going.

I'm entering my tie for Hels Sunday stamper challenge which this week is 'Numbers.   Probably didn't mean numbers in the way I've used them but hey ho... I've done numbers all the same :D


I used stamps from Crafty Individuals... did a bit of masking and also some colouring with Distress Inks. 
Thanks for looking.

hugs

It's been too long since I caught your lovely artwork. Love the "guy" theme you seem to be on at the moment. This tie is so, so clever. It would be a great Father's Day gift, too. Really like the erratic "message," too.
