Shadow Art

Here is a card I made for the Inspiration Challenge today at Splitcoast from the iDesignMe site (pictured below) using the 'Magic Masking Tape' technique for the background which is easy to do.  
To create the bkg., I rubbed masking tape onto my Distress ink green pads, then pressed the masking tape onto my paper and  removed it to transfer the ink.  I really like the distressed look it gave.  I then overstamped with a bkg. image and added the silhouette of the boy on his bike.  I think this would be a fun card to give a teenage boy.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  Hope you get a chance to try this too.  

Supplies:  stamps; Flonz, Kaiser/ masking tape/ Distress ink/ Memento bl
