CAS and Grunge

The challenge on Addicted to CAS is Grunge.  I think that is a hard one to carry off but I am going to give it a try.

When I think of GRUNGE I think masculine.  Some of the sample cards on the Addicted to CAS site aredefinately not masculine.  Maybe I will have to try a feminine version.  I could not go single layer.  Single layer cards scare me - really scare me.

Since I think masculine, I dug out my favorite truck stamp.  It is an old stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I do not believe the new owners have brought back this image.  They really should.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I distressed the edges of the image, mat and sentiment with my Tim Holtz distresser.  I did some embossing on the upper corner of my card and then I got out a mask and used some distress paint to add the green and blue color to the card front.

I hope I achieved CAS and also GRUNGE.  I am going to go make another card like this since I cut a 12 x 12 sheet of card stock and can make one more card.  Both these cards will go in my next Operation Write Home box.

Thanks for stopping by.

Great card Barb! I think it is totally grunge! I'm not sure I have any grunge in me...but I may have to give this challenge a try. I love the truck image.
