Relaxing in the Man Cave

Hi Everyone,
Yay ! The sun has come out today here and it feels much better, hope you are enjoying some sunshine where you are.
This is another card I made for my Nephew, the image comes from Karen's Doodles and is called Man Cave.

6 x 6 card blank
Man Cave image - Karen's Doodles
Sentiments - LOTV & The Paper Studio
Go Kreate large Oval dies
Hand cut banners
Cuttlebug Embossing folder for background
Enamel dots
This image was so much fun to colour and I enjoyed creating the stone wall look in the cave. Here's a close up of the image...
The background was created by embossing the green cardstock with the cuttlebug folder and then applying Versamark clear embossing ink over the raised squares so they could be heat embossed with clear embossing powder - I thought this looked like animal skin.
