Crafter's Retreat #7

Nearly there...I promise....

I did so many male cards whilst away....this is another. I have been really lucky with getting inspiration from DP of late and these cards are no exception. I had an idea bouncing around and it basically came to be...which is a nice change. I used Just Jawing...which I have played with a bit of's great for those tween age guys and gals. These are the cards........

When I initially stamped and mounted the skull...on the darker background the Whisper White looked VERY stark. So the cogs started clunking..... I ended up getting out my Kaiser Clear Grunge stamp, borrowed one of the gals Brocade Blue inks, stamped off the ink and then onto the skull. It looked so cool!!

Took all the starkness magic....and like it's name....grunged it up really well.

Thanks for popping by again. I sincerely hope that you are enjoying my camp made creations.
