City Scene

Morning.  
Hope you week is going well.

A very simple card just using one stamp from Technique Junkies.
I stamped the image twice with black Memento ink, then cut the center of one of the stamped panels using a stitched die from MFT.  I backed it with a piece of black cardstock and then pop dotted it over the main stamped image.  I coloured just the car image with a red Copic marker.  I think it helps pull your eye in and gives the scene some depth.

Adding my card to these challenges:

CASology- OPEN
(let the shopping begin!)

The Male Room- ANYTHING GOES
