how ARRRRRR you?

I made this card as part of a challenge for this blog I used the Stampin' UP! sanded background then used a piece of paper from I believe Hobby Lobby with little crossbones and skulls. I then cut a rectangle outta Grungepaper by Tim Holtz (hes not only very creative but very cute) that I then crackle painted with Picket Fence (another great Tim Holtz product) then inked it with black and while still wet wiped off the black to give it a gray look then heavy inked it with red! I cut out the ARRR from the cricut and just stamped the how and you and used Stickles for the question mark. Last but not least I took a piece of grunge board (again T.H.) that I painted with regular acrylic paint white then inked with white pigment ink!

What a great card for a man I think!! Hope you enjoy!

a confession....

I am confessing that I am a dollar bin clear stamp addict!! Michaels has a section and my local shop has a section and I can't go to either without digging through them for the latest and greatest! I went to said shops yesterday and ended up buying out some stamps at Michaels. Aren't they too cute!?!?!?!

this last one is not from Michaels!
