Clear Block Grunge...


This week over at the Friday Mashup, Amanda's got us using our clear blocks in a different way (not just for holding stamps!)...

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "Clear Block Stamping (use your clear block as a stamp)."
  2. Create a project using "Color-blocking."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project using "Clear Block Stamping & Color-blocking."
Well I must confess that my card for this challenge is one I made a while ago at a training day that I've never posted here and fit the bill perfectly so I thought I'd go ahead and post it for this challenge...

I stamped the Whisper White panel with clear blocks in Basic Grey, Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake, then dragged the This & That Epic Day rotary stamp down the card and few times to get a grungy sort of look (Hayley demonstrated this at the training day - always fun to learn new tips and tricks eh?!). I added some washi tape, cut some hexagons from the Epic Day paper and added some faux stitching with a marker. The greeting is from Label Love, stamped with Basic Grey on Crumb Cake, cut out then layered on an Artisan Label punched shape from Basic Grey card. I figure this sort of card would be good for a boy - maybe even those scary teenage boys lol! I'm linking this up to the current Seize the Birthday challenge - can never have enough birthday cards eh?!

Make sure you check out the rest of the design team's creations this week!
