New Home

Hello lovely peeps

Our nephew moved into his first flat last week so I made a new home card for him using this fab Cityscape digi from Oddball Art.

I printed the digi onto 300gsm Supersmooth card from Limetree Crafts with a computer sentiment. 

Although it's quite a cute image I thought if I coloured it in with neutral colours it would suit a young man (I've used Promarkers)

The original plan was to do a 5x7 card but after folding the card over I liked the look of the back being wider than the front of the card.

To decorate the back edge I drew scribbly lines with a black fineliner and coloured to match the main image.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-

I love Promarkers #443 AG opt monochrome

Dream Valley Challenges #254 Make it digital

Just Add Ink #571 just add lines

TIME OUT Challenges #196 Brave (nephew flying the coop)

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe
