Paperboy

I've used the fabulous PAPERBOY plate to create this weeks card, again another grungy make, which I love.

I showcased the paperboy in a large circle, stamping the background with the newsprint and then adding the boy using black Archival Ink. I love layering inks and images. I then added a few splats to add to the aged feel and added "be honest" from the Kudzu Kafe plate.

I added a panel down the left hand side of my card again stamped with the newsprint background stamp. I also added buttons threaded with twine for added dimension and added the fabulous sentiment to the bottom corner, adding dimension and highlighting the HERO word in the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Awesome dimension on this card. The colour palette is beautiful and I love the splats. They add wonderful depth and make me smile. Every element supports the others so well from the buttons to the distressing, the stamping to the layering...gorgeous. The little boy looks so earnest...honest is a great word for him.
