The Stampin'B challenge this week was to use a border punch. I really like plaids; and, when I recently saw this EK Success plaid border punch, it spoke to me. And I listened! I thought it would look good on a masculine card, so I used a new set from Mark's Finest Papers called All Aboard and made a definite guy card.
After stamping the image, I colored it with Copic markers and matted it with both red and black cs. It didn't fill up the entire horizontal space, so I added the little panel with railroad tracks. The train station in the stamped image reminds me of a train station near the rural town in Pennsylvania where I grew up! That little pewter locomotive is part of my late husband's train memorabilia.
