Addicted to CAS - Codeword: Grunge

Welcome to another ATCAS challenge, and this one was a REAL challenge for me!  GRUNGE!!!

I don't do grunge.

And how do you do grunge and CAS?   Now that's a challenge!

But I had to try.  I thought paint platters look grungy, and I only own one dauber bottle of paint, and it happens to be Distress Paint in Picket Fence. So I pulled out some black cardstock and got to splatting.
 I used the "happy" and "birthday" stamps from Winnie and Walter's "The Big , The Bold and The Happy stamp set - LOVE LOVE LOVE this set!!

  6. Hi Michelle,

    Striking! Thats the word I'd use for your card. I love that you used the pattern off-kilter,and the stitching really "sews it up" (pun intended)

    Blessings,

  11. CAS and grunge sure are a difficult combo but you did it beautifully, the white against the black is fabulous and love the font on the sentiment a match made in heaven.
