Say It In...Brown and Blue

Hi Guys,

I hope your week has been a great one!

To be honest mine has been awful and I wont bore you to death with my socky socky la la whinging tales of woe roflol, your here to see a card for AnnaBelle Stamps Blog fun theme challenge and this week it's 'Say It In...Brown and Blue, love this colour combo!!!

So here's my card:

Even though I Love this colour combo I was a little stuck on what to do, all I knew I wanted to do was a Male card with a little distressing so I pulled out 'Rockin' Instrumental' Stamp Set by AnnaBelle Stamps, some jute string and my Waterfall Sprinkles also by AnnaBelle stamps and my design came together pretty quickly(Love when that happens lol)

I distressed all my layers of card stock using a paper distresser and sponged some brown ink around each of my layers, punched out my tags using a Fiskars Tag Punch which I picked up from Spotlight(a craft department store)on clearance for $2.00(I was quite chuffed with this bargain as I don't see many of them, bargains that is lol)and I stamped 'You' on one tag with some Blue ink and 'Rock!' on the other, punched some tiny holes at the top and thread them through the jute string!

I stamped my Drums in Chocolate Chip ink onto my White card Stock, I'm using the Copic card stock to do my stamping on for everyday stamping use, LOVE IT lol!

To finish of my card I placed some yummy 6mm Waterfall Sprinkles in the two opposite corner using my Sakura Quickie Glue Pen.

My Stamped panel of card stock has been adhered onto my Chocolate Chip piece and I have adhered these panels onto my Baja Breeze piece of card stock using some 3D foam mounting tape as I wanted this panel to be 'popped' up!

I know I have already said this but I love this colour combo and 'Rockin' Instrumental' is such an AWESOME stamp set to play with lol!
