Skipping Stones Design Sketch #112

Today marks another week for a Skipping Stones Design sketch and what a great sketch it is :)

For my card this week, I used a combo of Grunge and Grunge 2...and made a masculine card. That is one of my goals for this year, is to make more masculine cards because I never seem to have any!

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and that paired up Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla and a retired color called Bucakaroo Blue. Using coordinating ink colors, I stamped two of the textures on the green and blue strips and stamped the woodgrain on the vanilla piece. On a separate piece of vanilla cardstock I stamped the woodgrain again and then punched out 11 stars. I stuck the stars to the larger piece in a pattern using foam tape. Before adhering the panel to the card base I distressed the edges with a pair of scissors. Finishing touches were a few splats in the corner and the sentiment stamped in black.

Be sure to stop by the Skipping Stones Design blog and check out all the inspiration and play along!
