Birthday Graffiti


I collect the strips/snippets that get trimmed from cards etc, and now and then I get inspired to use them.  I wanted to make a graffiti card for a male, and thought this is a great way to use them.  The background is an embossed brick wall, sponged with Distress Inks and stamped roughly.  The word is cut from card made using the paper strips, and stacked with black card for dimension.

EF: Sizzix

Word Die: unbranded

Age and We Rock stamps: Art impressions

XOXO stamp: Fiskars

>>>> stamp: Tim Holtz

Also: Distress Inks
