For the Men - Artistic Outpost Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost Plates/Themes, this months DT Blog Hop theme is Masculine.

Mixed Media Card - Stamps Artistic Outpost Paperboy
I created the background of my card using the Gelli Arts Plate, Ranger Distress Paints (Mowed Grass, Rusty Hinge and Broken China), and a stencil from The Crafters Workshop.  Once the background was dry, I stamped the building in Black Archival, the text in Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and the boy and sentiment onto scrap background pieces in Black Archival.  The boy is colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor pencils, blending with Gamsol.
