The Greeting Farm - Tank For a monochromatic Boys Birthday

Hi guys! I hope you all had a fabulous Mothers day! I spent the weekend at my mum's house, and had stamp club on Sunday :) Apart from that, there wasn't a lot of crafting done, so when I got home, it was time to get inky! Here is my effort this afternoon -
I started by colouring Tank (by The Greeting Farm) using my Basic Grey Marker and blender pen, with some very subtle highlighting in Basic Black, and fussy cut him out... I picked out this glossy patterned paper from Kaisercraft On the Move patterned paper stack, and cut it to be a 1/4 of an inch smaller than my card base. I then flipped it over and drew a curve using a pencil, and followed the curve using my sharp scissors. I attached it to the card base, and drew a border using my Black Stampin' Write Marker and the sentiment from Grunge Rock (Stampin' Up!) I layered some black bakers twine over the patterned paper as well as some buttons and then popped Tank up on dimensionals....
I used inspiration from iSpySketches and also from the Splendid Stamping monochrome challenge. 
 
Thanks for dropping around :)
