A Graphic Challenge

Betsy Veldman, one of Paper Crafts Go-to Gals, issued a challenge this week to make a masculine card inspired by fabrics or clothes. Around our house graphic tees are the go-to apparel choice so I went graffiti tee all the way!

and here is my card that this t-shirt inspired

I used a mix of stamp sets, most of which weren't meant to be graffiti (Everyday Blessings for the cross, and Baroque Motifs for the swirly).  I embossed the red cross so it would stand up against any graffiti elements that might have been over stamped on it

The chip board pieces were left over from trimming down the chipboard ring book for this project.  I inked them up with True Black ink, then stamped in Fresh Snow and added a little grunge by tapping the Fresh Snow ink pad around the edges


I also had to put a little graffiti on the inside too ... .just to complete the look :)

Thanks for stopping by!
