AECP - For The Guys

Today I'm back to share the card I made for my For The Guys class in the Altenew Educator Certification Program (AECP).  I loved the city skyline silhouette that the instructor did using the Galaxy Technique.  So, this is somewhat of a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of her card.  I used a different cityline and insted of gold foil, I used copper foil cardstock.  I've not done may galaxies.  I think this is like my third one and it's by far, the best one I've done.  It was fun create and I'm still cleaning up little flecks of white from my crafting area.  I did get a wee bit messy.

I didn't have a stamp or die of a city skyline so, I found a free image online, printed it onto white cardstock and traced it onto the back of the galaxy background and did some fussy cutting.  I love the way it turned out.  I didn't add a sentiment, as I'm not sure what occasion I'll use it for but sometimes I don't add one and just write a note or stamp one on the inside of the card.

Inks:  Maple Yellow, Persian Blue (Altenew)
Distress Oxide Inks:  Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Fired Brick, Black Soot (Tim Holtz)
Cardstock:  Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Copper Foil (Stampin' Up!)
Other:  Picket Fence Distress Paint (Tim Holtz)

Tomorrow I'll share my next class project with you.  Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe.
