Skipping Stones Design- Introducing Grunge 2 and sketch #110

Hello friends!

Welcome to Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge #110 and the introduction and release of Skipping Stones newest set- Grunge Two.


If you just came from Karen's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.



Here is my card for today's hop:

Love You Dude

I took cues from the patterned papers I selected, the Amy Tangerine line from American Crafts, to create the above card.  I stamped the speckle image in gray on Fine Lined cardstock, and the zig-zag and fleur image at the bottom in blue.  I also stamped the film strip image on striped patterned paper with Lilac Posie ink.  The male and female icons were created using a dingbat font on my computer, printed and adhered to the project.  

I added a heart die cut to the female image (to show her love for the "dude") and added a few staples.  The completed stamped panel was adhered to a card based covered with patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment at an angle and added a button as a finishing touch. 



Here is this week's sketch:
