Monika and Billie week 7 / diamond and manly

Monday April 13, 2015
It's week 7 for the Monika and Billie background and or no designer paper challenge between ourselves.
Monika's choice this week is DIAMONDS BACKGROUND AND MASCULINE
I do not have a diamond overall background stamp - BUT I do have the Paper Trey Ink retro volume 3 backgrounds.. it has a few different styles and they are all just a couple of rows /repeat stamp so I took  diamond  and I just repeated the stamp till my white paper was covered then cut it down to size. I like the look. I used Stampin Up not quite navy ink.  Then I took the Simon Says all boy stamps and colored the dude, shoes, game controls and cut them out. I wanted a bright blue behind the sentiments so I took a bright blue copic pen and cut a piece of white paper just a little larger then the sentiment and used the bright blue to color the paper, I think it pops the sentiments. The happy birthday I don't know who puts it out.  I loved coloring the tennis shoes. The game controls also but the shoes were my favorite. All are on pop dots.  I think I did a good job with Monika's choice for us this 7th week. 
I hope you make it over to Creative with Monika and see her card and give her some love.
