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.

Such a beautifull stamps-set, the only problem when we buy it and it arrives in Belgium we have to pay more taxes to the costumer than the whole stamps-set costs!!!

Greetings
