MFP Blog Hop Day 1 April 16, 2013


April Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

 Featured April 16
Columns & Topiaries


I think this would be a wonderful card for a man.  It is so difficult to create masculine cards sometimes.  I stamped the images with Memento ink and colored with my Copic Markers.  The greenery on top of the tall column is a separate image.  The green strip on the bottom was run through an embossing folder. 
 Thanks for stopping by today.
