Jazzy Inspirations 18

I created this card for the Jazzy inspirations #18 color challenge. The colors to use are gray, black, white and a pop of green.

I used a technique, inking a Cuttlebug folder, for the main panel of the card. I inked up the Happy Birthday embossing folder with black ink to add color to the white card stock. I added my pop of green by coloring part of the embossed image with a green and black marker. I distressed the edges of the card stock to add a bit of grunge to tie in with the look of the main image panel. As I looked at this card, I thought this could be a great masculine card without the ribbon.

Supplies: Card stock - Stampin Up (going gray, basic black), Papertrey Ink (white); Ink - Brilliance graphite black, Marvy LePlume II markers (black, leaf green); Tim Holtz paper distressor tool, Ribbon - Offray, Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder
