No Peeking David

I've been excited to share this card for a couple of days. I created this card for my brother's birthday and needed to give it a few days head start in the mail. :)


My brother moved away to NYC several years back (sniff, sniff) so I was excited to incorporate the city stamp in to the scene. The critter was colored using Distress inks (one of my new favorite techniques) and the city scape was shaded using Copics. When ever I make a card for a guy, color and texture are always very important. The torn cork, fall colors and loose string on the button added just the touch I needed.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies: Penny Black Stamps (Cityscape, Party Time, Happy Birthday), PTI Paper and Buttons, Glossy Accents, Cork, Copics, Distress Ink, Memento Ink, String
