Sage Shadow is a retiring color - I don't think I have ever used it before. I guess I shouldn't say it is pretty when making a "manly" card but it is a nice color. My daughter Sarah, my friend Angelica and I actually worked together to come up with this design. I love those puppies riding in the back! I stamped the truck with Stazon and then embossed it with black powder. I then outlined the truck with a Sage Shadow pen and used a blender pen to lighten it a bit.
