At first I thought of stamping the little gecko repeatedly to make a background. I got all the way to the finished card and decided it didn't work...too busy. I picked the parts I liked best and distilled them into this, much more CAS card
I liked the little fussy cut gecko, with his shiny eyes, I liked the tail of the gecko stamped on the edge as if he's just wandered across the card....
...and I liked the colouring in of the lettering when it was just a few solid lines, not too accurate. This time I also went for monotone, using a Promarkers pen, yep, it's all done with just one pen and one ink pad, Mossy Meadow.
Finishing touches include a black mat.
