Hello Ian

Today, I'm sharing a card I made using the 14th day sketch for the CPS 5th Anniversary (#45):

I have a little stack of new supplies sitting on my desk that I've been wanting to use before I put them away and I used a few of them on this card:

Pin It

 The Ian image reminded me of a little newspaper boy (it must be the hat!) so I paired him with the Hero Arts Newspaper Background.  I stamped the newspaper on Pool Party paper with Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I inked over the background with Island Indigo so the Pool Party would come through.  I love this technique and don't use it enough!  I used the same ink colors to color in his colors.  He's such a sweet image.

I usually color brown hair but today I decided to try something new.  I need to find the right combo for blondes but I like how this one turned out.
