Boris And Company

Hello and welcome to another week.  Today I am sharing a card I made for this month's Your Next Stamp Tasty Tuesday challenge.  It's been a while since I've been able to participate in one of YNS's challenges thanks to my migraine flare ups, but this weekend I just had to get something done migraine or no migraine.  I also decided I would keep my card clean and simple - or at what's clean and simple (CAS) for me.

At first I wasn't sure what to do with the inspiration photo, however after going through some of my YNS stamps, I finally settled on the Boris From Russia set I had won last fall during the SCS Hope You Can Cling To Challenges.  So after stamping my images in memento tuxedo black, with Boris being stamped twice, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and got to coloring before sponging Stampin Up! baja breeze and chocolate chip inks around the edges then layering.  I then but a panel of chocolate chip card stock, dry embossed it using a cuttlebug Moroccan embossing folder that needed to also see some love, and added that to my card.  The only embellishments are some vintage brads and the second image of Boris popped up using mini pop dots.
