Card for a formal Male, and a watch man for a boys birthday

Hi there, these are my two latest cards, the first one is the formal and the inspiration for this came from Lisa at You Made Me Ink, She makes beautiful cards and lots of lovely projects, she is a great inspiration.   I used regular cardstock that I bought from Office Works, and I have a hand crimper that I bought a long time ago from a "cheap shop"  it has been used a lot, the bow tie is from some bows I found on the net some time ago and I didn't record who they came from, so whoever you are "Thanks"   I used Kaiser Basic stick on pearls for the buttons. Am very happy with this as I am always chasing inspiration for male cards,
with the second card the inspiration for this one came from
Scraps from a Broad,  "
she is full of inspiration too.   I made this card with a few variations, using embossing powder for the outlines of the man,
I did want to use black but unfortunately I could not get the WOW emb powder to work, so used Ranger silver, I used one of Tim Holtz emb folder "retro circles" on the front, and used
an assortment of chain, jump rings, and clock from my stash,
I used Faber-Castille water colours to colour the man and the
inks used to shade the background, and the letters is Ranger
distress ink pad, "Vintage Photo"  I am happy with this
but I would have liked the embossing powder to be black
instead of silver.
