Make It Monday Creating Backgrounds

I fiddled with this card for a few days for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #31.

The technique wasn't difficult...

it just took awhile to get it the way I wanted it.

The strip with the sentiment was stamped and colored over with Copic and Memento markers.

I then stamped the background strip with Game On and Grunge Me (my fave "jewelry" much you can do.)

I added faux stitching to that section.
I think it can go to a male or female, don't you?

Thank you for stopping in. ;)
