grunge rock, baby

Well.....wouldn't you know????? 

I was working on a card for the Create with Connie and Mary challenge this week - a sketch challenge......and I also won a subscription to the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition - GREAT ideas on there....by the way  :).......and they host a challenge for all subscribers on Saturdays....it was a color challenge.  KNOW WHAT????  The colors I was working with were the same exact colors that were in the Summer Edition challenge!!!!  It was meant to be.....inky fate, so to say ;) 

Wanna see both challenges??





Sweet on both, huh?  I bet you are wondering where I went with those......Well - even if you aren't - I will still show you - lol!!!



One thing to note - the color challenge said we could add any neutrals - I added crumb cake and basic black.  I challenged myself not to use whisper white or very vanilla.....how did I do?  The card base is basic grey - I think it looks a little bluish here - but trust me, it is grey....hehe

I did take the creative liberty of enlarging the main image panel of the sketch - please don't stone me for it.....I really wanted to use a combination of Extreme Elements and Grunge Rock - which is on sale this month.  I think Grunge Rock is essential if you make teen cards - or if you make any cards for people that are in video game rock bands ;)  And at the sale price - who could resist????

Take a closer look at the dirtiness of those panels and all of the layering of stamps.



I would love to know what you think of my grunge rock, baby.
Have a great day!

WAHOO!! I am lovin' your card. I agree Grunge Rock is an absolute must have set. I like all the layering and the subtle bits of stamping you have created. So glad you were able to play along with both challenges over at Create this week.
