Chocolate & Mint...Yummy!

Made for my closest friend's son who turned 18 last week.

I used the fabulous boy with his laptop, drawn by the equally fabulous Mo Manning.  I wanted to make a simple card with an earthy look suitable for a teenage boy, and I didn't want to make it over complicated. I bought First Edition's Summer Breeze paper pad for another card I'm doing and I was so inspired by the paper designs and colours that I decided to go with a brown and mint green theme.  I must admit the papers in this pad are gorgeous! I must admit I can colour till the cows come home but I always struggle with my background layers, so after seeing many blog cards recently with the banner strips I decided to try them out, and hopefully they work well.

I used:
Pens: Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Copics, Spectum Noirs
Papers: First Edition ' Summer Breeze'
Ink: Black Memento, Tea Dye Distressing Ink
Computer generated sentiment
Image: Computer Boy from Mo's Digital Pencil

Thanks for looking, hope you like it.
