Paul Texting

This is the second card I made for my 15 year old sons friend, I wanted to give him a choice.  This time I used another Mo Manning image - Paul Texting and coloured him using a combination of ProMarkers and Spectrum Noir Pens.  I have to say I think this is my favourite of the two but my son chose 'Air Guitar'.

I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and made this one quite a bit brighter than the last one.  I used some My Mind's Eye papers I've had hanging around for a while and used Kraft for the base again.  Some texture was added with corrugated card and raffia.  The buttons were from my stash and the sentiment tag is cut down from my Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Three and stamped with a LOTV sentiment.  Full details of everything I have used are detailed below.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front.

Image: Mo Manning - Paul Texting
Papers:  My Mind's Eye - Abbey Road
Tools:  Spellbinders Classic Squares (inside card), Ribbon Tag Trio Three
Embellishments: buttons and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV
