Techno Diva Day

Hi Stamping Friends!

Today's double challenge card uses a sketch from Techno Stamper TSSC92 (love her playlist BTW!) and a color challenge from the Diva's at Diva Coffee Break Designs DCBD150.

I thought these colors would make an awesome teen boy card, so I got out my Extreme Elements and Extreme Skateboard stamps.  Here's what I came up with:

I really like how this turned out.  Totally grungy!  The card base is Certainly Celery and then layered with Basic Gray and Old Olive.  The Old Olive layer is stamp with the Extreme Elements set in Old Olive.  The skater image is stamped in Basic Gray.  The stars from the Extreme Elements set are stamped in Really Rust.  I tried to use my Spritzer Tool again, to dirty up the image, but I'm just not having alot of luck with that thing!  I distressed the main image with my distressing tool from the Cutter Kit and sponged Basic Gray ink on all the layers.  The sentiment comes from the All Holidays set.  I was really happy with the Hemp Twine.  I used a Stamping Sponge and rubbed some Really Rust ink onto it.  Then I ran my Hemp across the sponge to color it.  Hemp in any color you want!

Extreme Skateboard  #115179  $8.95

Happy Stamping!
