Curtain Call # 26

Welcome back for another of Stacey's Stunning Curtain Call Colour Challenges!  Act #26 calls for the use of Whisper White, Basic Gray, Going Gray and Crushed Curry ( in my case not yet available in Australia, so I have substituted Summer Sun).  I really had fun making this card, roughing up the edges and making it a little bit dirty, defiantely different from my usual style!  But with a run of boy's birthdays coming up it was necessary to come up with a suitable design!  this is another set I bought while in Canada late last year and only mounted it just before I used it!!

If you would like to play along, head over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and link your creation in with Mr Linky! I hope you can join in for yet another week!

If you would like some inspiration to get you started with these colours you can head over to the Design Team members blogs to check out their stunning creations and our illustrious leader, Stacey, will allways have a beautiful creation to get you going!

Ink: Summer Sun, Basic Gray and Going Gray (I have double stamped the skull and the knives to make them darker)

Another great kid, card! You are the master! Very clever with the hat! I had to get a closer look at the button. Love how you layered it, nice!
