This image always reminds me of Gandalf (Lord of the Rings).  This stamp (Wizard by MoManning) was bought from Quixotic Paperie when they were still in business.

All the grey cloak and hat have been coloured with Copics, the pops of bright blue and yellow are ProMarkers.  This bright blue is my favourite right now for doing male cards because it's so striking.  One of the design papers I picked also has this blue in it :)

The image has been cut out with a Spellbinders die and distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink.

The design papers are from Santoro Grojuss.

The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley art pad.  I've added this same blue and a little brown ProMarker to give it an aged feel.  The sentiment actually has something girly on so I disguised it with a couple of brass stars, which actually went very well with the whole card theme :)
