True and Loyal - 1920's Kody

Hi guys and gals! I'm back with a Copic Colouring video and a card!  This time I'm exploring the more masculine side of card making with a very retro themed card.

Growing up I loved hearing stories from my grandmother lived during the Great Depression.  Sometimes she would put on her hi-fi to old records she had and cook "depression meals" like fried potatoes and hotdogs.

I watched the Great Gatbsy not that long ago in theatres.  In High School we read the Great Gatsby and thus began my love affair with the story (not necessarily works by Zelda or F.Scott Fitzgerald) but an overall appreciation of the 1920's era.

I probably had these things on my mind when I checked out some more great digistamps from SomeOddGirl.com and picked up dashing, handsome young man 1920's Kody.  He's the perfect spiffing young man to tell my friend that I'm proud of him for getting a new job!

Kody is quite dapper in this this vest and matching pants in muted greys.  He is accompanied by a Simon Says Stamp Apothecary Dies and Labels stamp.

Here's the video:
