Mixed Media Funny Birthday Card

The theme and sketch challenge at STAMPlorations is still going strong, and for our mid-month reminder I decided to tackle the sketch. 

I love working with lots of layers, so I was excited to take on this particular sketch. 

To play along in the STAMPlorations challenge, you can use either the theme or the sketch OR both. Options! You could also win lots of prizes! 

I had this piece of cardstock that I'd mopped up some extra Distress Spray Stains with, and I slathered some texture paste through the Dots All Over ARTplorations stencil

After the texture paste dried, I spritzed it with Distress Spray Stain in Mermaid Lagoon. I love how splashy the backgrounds turn out when you spritz the stains directly to page. 

As you can see, I used some patterned paper for the center panel, and then stamped a funny sentiment from my A Snarky Birthday to You stamp set, as well as a star from the same set. 

So there you go, a fab-o funny mixed media card, which could be used for a boy OR a girl! Blam! 

I'm going to play along at the following challenges:
Crafting by Designs - For A Man
Dream Valley Challenges - Lots of Layers
The Crazy Challenge - Masculine
Pile It On - Humor/Puns

I hope you'll come play along in our Theme & Sketch Challenge
