Grateful Grunge Rock


It's time for another fun ColourQ challenge and this week we've got a fab inspiration piece for you...

There are lots of possibilities with this one, but I thought they would work well for a boy's card. I need to make some more thank you cards for guys and there's one boy in particular I wanted to make a card for - he's 15 and a drummer in our church band so I challenged myself to see if I could make one to fit the bill with these colours...

And I was pretty pleased with how it turned out! I borrowed Gorgeous Grunge from Claire, a fellow demonstrator who lives round the corner (very handy!!) and played with that as well as Pennant Parade to create this card. Gorgeous Grunge was one of those sets I saw in the catalogue and thought 'what's the point in that?!' then as I've seen more and more samples with it I've become strangely drawn to use it... now I can't wait to get my hands on it at Convention lol!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Pennant Parade, Gorgeous Grunge, Simply Serif mini alphabet
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Tempting Turquoise, Stazon black
Paper: Epic Day dsp, Cajun Craze, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Naturals White, Whisper White
Accessories: Neutrals candy dots
Tools: Pennant punch, 3/4" circle punch

Make sure you stop by the rest of the design team and see what fab creations they've made using these colours!

Thanks for stopping by...
