Hero in your Own Story

Mixed Media - Stamps Artisitc Outpost Paperboy, Designer Lisa Somerville
The Paperboy set is perfect for Mixed Media projects!  For the background on this card, I used the Dry Embossing with Stencils Technique from the April issue of Club CR8.  Once the stencil was embossed, I added Distress Paints using the Gelli Arts Printing Plate, after the paint dried, I stamped the building and text in Black Archival.  The sweet paperboy is stamped on a scrap piece of card stock, cut out and adhered in place.

Love the background layer with that fabulous text stamp, and how you've created an extra urban look under the stamping with the Gelli plate and stencilling - fantastic!
