As Intended

Hello everyone,

This card is more what I had in mind for yesterday's card.

The images are Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge stamped in Lost Lagoon, Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Baja Breeze and highlighted with Wink of Stella Clear 999.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up Whimsical Words stamped in StazOn Jet Black on Ranger alcohol inked glossy paper and layered on textured Bazzill teal.  The embellishment is of unknown origin.

I've seen the Grunge images as a background on a number of cards and find it really appealing even though this is certainly out of my comfort zone.  Using ink colours that work with the alcohol inked square gives great layers and visual interest amid all the lovely white space.  The metal butterfly charm is rather unusual as well and adds even more interest.  This is what I had hoped to achieve with yesterdays card. It just goes to show that sometimes you just have to keep working at it and success will come.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
