FTL82 - A Grunge Thank You

I like this week's clean&simple sketch (FTL82), but instead of CAS I decided to take the sketch to the "dark side". (grin)
I also flipped the sketch upside down because the BIRDS ON A WIRE punch is suited for the top of papers. Umbrella Man was inked with different colors of Distressed Ink and then cut out. The edges were also distressed with ink.


Stamps: Stampers Anonymous CREATIVE MUSE
Paper: kraft
Ink: Distress Ink: Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Vintage Glass, Broken China
Accessories: Martha Stewart BIRDS ON A WIRE punch

  2. Deb - I really like this "softer" look of grunge and that rainman - gotta love him. But I must admit you are an enabler - I NEED that Martha Stewart Bird on a Wire punch... gotta have it!!!
