SHADES OF GRAY

When I think of shades of gray, I think of the old silent movies or the classics that starred  people like Bette Davis, Myrna Loy, Cary Grant, William Powell...You see where Im going. 


And for this reason I chose a digital stamp that I have from MosDigitalPencil.com  that is called "The Tramp" for the following challenges.  The first is over at crafting when we can and its a "monochrome" challenge...the other is over at paper play time and the challenge they have going is a "Miss you" challenge. 


The Tramp

For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements.  Art Deco-Pantages Theater
Marquee (pg 41), cut at 1 3/4 inches, Plantin SchoolBook-sentiment, cut at 1/2 inch and Mickey
and Friends-icon/border (pg 114), cut at 1 inch.

I colored the digital stamp using the following Copic markers...C0, C3, C5, C7, B32 and B34.  This is the first time Ive done this type of coloring, so I hope it looks alright!

I then centered my sentiment and put pop dots on the underside of the marquee and placed
all of the images on the mat...which is 4 3/4"x 6 3/4" (blue),  4 1/2"x 6 1/2" (black) and 3"x 5" (gray).

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.  Kathie
