Challenge chicks get chatty!

It's Challenge Chicks day over at Cornish Heritage Farms and today's challenge is "wordy" - use words as a feature of your design.

I seem to have come over a bit floaty and romantic just recently so I thought it was probably time to knock that on the head and go for something a bit different!

I've used words from the Big Inspiration set to create my wordy background - I went for repeat stampings of IMAGINE, CREATE and INSPIRE and a single (obviously!) UNIQUE stamped in acrylic paint. The grungy look of the typeface seemed a perfect pairing with a Grungeboard skull and crossbones. I thought this might be a fun card to remind a teen girl that she's special!

Stamps:
Big Inspiration

Paper:
Razzleberry medium (Prism Papers)

Ink:
Fluid chalk ink by Clearsnap (Dark Peony)
Adirondack paint dabber by Ranger (Snowcap)

Other:
Sewing machine and thread
Grungeboard
Stamp positioner

Great card, you're right, it's quite different from those you've been making lately - a change is as good as a rest, so they say
