The theme this week at Addicted to CAS is Grunge. I tried to make something for this challenge yesterday, but couldn't quite figure out how to mesh Grunge with Clean & Simple ... but today, I think I nailed it.
I started with fabulously grunge papers from Um Wow Studio's Nature Walk Collection (a big thanks to Um Wow for providing products for the Crafter's Companion USA design team). Next I stamped a round birthday sentiment from Sentimentals - Imagine using a combination of brown & black ink in keeping with my grungy feel.
The layout is this week's sketch from The Paper Players ... I used a kraft background for the *white space* of my clean & simple design. I finished with a Nature Walk Element sticker, a Cosmo Cricket Label Sticker, and some Um Wow Chipboard Layered Stars.
