Simply Less is More # 174 take 3

Hi There,
Considering I`ve spent the majority of my cardmaking life making twee flowery or cute and lacy baby cards, nobody can be more surprised than me at how much I`m enjoying playing with my grunge stamps. Having said that, I hope I`m not coming across as some old bird trying to be young and trendy . My daughter was impressed though...or she could have just been shocked that I even knew what grunge was lol.

I woke up the other morning with an idea running through my head ( now that doesn`t happen very often) so I just went with it and this is the result, `His & Hers Grunge`,

I`ve used the same stamps on both cards although they are not identical.
I used Kaisercraft Stains and Artemio circles stamped in a variety of colours. Made the alpha`s from scrap bits of card  using Die-Namics dies and placed them with foam pads.
The sentiment is computer generated.

Right...I might get my hair dyed green and have some piercings done, get down with the kids and...maybe not.

This is my third entry in this weeks Simply Less is More challenge which is to use more than one stamp, I`ve used 4.
I`m also entering  Pixies Snippets Playground
as I`ve used a tiny bit of my mountain of snippets.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  12. Hi Lynne . . . well I know JUST how you feel . . . I absolutely ADORE my grunge splats and lines and can't get over how inky I can be with them. It seems I have a split crafting personality disorder! I l love the CAS and cute, but also the inky grunge!

    These two cards look fabulous to me. Very fresh and exciting . . . but please don't dye your hair green! Don't think that's a good look on ANYONE!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
