Sunday Day Trippers....

This is my next Ethel and Murray creation using stamps from Creative Expressions' witty, Wrinkles don't Hurt plate.

I used chipped Sapphire Distress ink to stamp the image and to distress the edges of the circle and label. The dies were all Spell binders dies. The patterned background paper was actually made using a huge background stamp that I found recently...it is soooo big that it hangs over the edge of my largest acrylic block, but it still seems to stamp out large enough for a 5 x 5 inch card! Exactly what I need.

The colour, the check, the simple lines and the sentiment all give this a very humorous masculine feel.

With that in mind I would like to enter it into several challenges.......

"Fairy Fun Holidays - Masculine"

"Just Add Ink - White and one other colour"

"Stampman - Monochrome"

"Clearly Inspired - Patterned Paper"

"Corrosive Challenges - Funny or Punny
