Da Rules!

Good morning!

This card was done for Nancy (actually a challenge that Nancy hosted at SCS), as well as for today's blog post.  I used corrugated cardboard and peeled parts of it off for a real distressed look then added some dry brush paint in white, black and patina.  

I stamped the fish, the sign and the sentiment all separately colored and then fussy cut the fish and sign.  The sign was then sponged with walnut ink Distress on the edges.  I cut the sentiment in a small strip and sponged the edges and that of the fish as well.
I cut a piece of gauze and dyed it with Tea Dye Distress refill.  I did not leave it long, just wanted an aged look the the "fishing net".

Next up:
This card started out as a plastic wrap technique (my background) see the technique used HERE.

I then found some card stock with the colors from my background and made a card base and frame.  I stamped Wild Thing with VersaFine to get a good black image, using my Misti.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut the flamingo scene and glued it to my background.

Thanks for visiting today!!

2 more winners Robin! Love the manly look of the fishing card - especially the fishing net! Your palm tree card is totally groovy! Love the background - reminds me of heat waves, perfect for the background of the flamingos!
