Suitcase Card

Hello Everybody!

There's a new challenge at Creative With Stamps-and it's for Manly Cards!

For my card I used a Dina Wakley stencil on a gessoed book page.  I used fire brick and gathered twigs distress inks for the bricks.   The sentiment shape is a Tim Holtz mover shaker and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  I inked the edges with graphite black Dew Drop ink.  Also, I  got a new Sizzix die cut from Tim Holtz and that is on the corner behind the suitcase.

The Suitcase!  I love this suitcase!  It's a digi stamp from Stamplorations (one of our sponsors-thank you!).  And I have colored it with Copic markers a green and warm grey.  I had to be careful because I colored the suitcase first and then decided to do brick work and then realized I had green and red.  And it's not a Christmas card!  But I think I was able to make the bricks brown enough.  LOL I hope so anyways!

I really like how this card turned out.  I was going to do a miss you but with all of the graduating seniors-I thought this would be great for a guy who was graduating and leaving-like off to college or the service. 

We have two great sponsors this month so be sure to check them out!

Also, are Team has done a great Manly job making cards-so be sure to see them also! :)  When you link up be sure to put our Challenge picture (at the top of this post) on your post!  :)

Until next time my friends...Have a beautiful day! :)

Wonderful coloring and very cool card design for a Grad going off to college, Katy! Good job with the digi suitcase and brick wall stencil on a printed page!

What a great digi image and love the brick wall and die cut behind the suitcase. I recently got this set of dies from Sizzix - got them home and thought hmmm....but now you have given me some ideas.
