Male Birthday with Newsprint

I really love cards featuring newsprint and just had to make one for The Male Room "Newsprint" Challenge!



 



Time to bring out the Hero Arts Newsprint Skyline that I haven't used in a while. Background is made with watercolor crayons and a baby wipe. The plane is colored with a silver marker.

Stamps: Hero Arts (sentiment, skyline, newsprint background), Inkadinkado (airplane from "Life in the city")
Other: Watercolor crayons (Caran d'Ache)

*ETA: This card received "Honourable Mention" at the Male Room!

The colors, the skyline, and the newsprint all make me very happy! And I can think of several family members/friends that I could send this to!

Let me know if you have any questions. I so appreciate your visit and your comments!

Hugs,
Susanne

Awesome background, Susanne ... I've not heard of the watercolour-crayons-with-baby-wipe technique ... another to add to my list of things to try! The crisp newsprint cityscape is fabulous against it! Hugs, Anita :)
