Stars and Stripes Guy Card

I wanted to play along with the Impression Obsession Masculine Card challenge. My friend, Jenny from One Krafty Kat has a wonderful sample on her blog along with the details on how to enter this challenge. And since this also fit the bill for the Stars and Stripes challenge over on No Time to Stamp, I thought I would sneak that in as well. Please check out the challenges and join in on the fun.

I love this New England Lighthouse - G1286 image. It is so much fun to color. Of course, I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen white paper and then colored with my Copic markers.
Crates - E43, E44
Post - E33, E37
Rocks - E70, E71
Beach - E51
Grass and Trees - G40, BG93
Sandy - E51
Boat and House - R39, B91
Water - B000
Sun - Y000
Lighthouse - C2, R39

I airbrushed B23 around the image and also in the sentiment panel before removing it from the die. The saying is computer generated. Finished size is 4 x 8.75 inches and fits a standard business envelope.
