I love this image of Charlie Chaplin (an old silent movie star for those of you who are way young); it's so great for a mancard.
I watercoloured the background plaid (I tried shading it from light to dark) with a ruler edge, the side of a coffee stirrer stick, a stamp and a stencil using distress inks. Then I spritzed with water and blotted to make it uneven and blotchy.
I painted around the image with distress ink Hickory Smoke with various intensities, and added the touch of purple in Dusty Concord.
I think the hessian and staples add a manly touch.
