Trashy Tuesday!

For the Trashy Tuesday challenge this week, Jacq asked us to make a card and to be inspired by Oscar the Grouch's Trash song. My kids both especially loved Oscar...might have something to do with their sloppy nature now! We were to use lines from the song for inspiration so I used 2.

"...here is some newspaper thirteen months old..." so I used some newspaper print DP that I crumpled and distressed...

"...a broken umbrella" well I had to go with this PTI set called Scattered Showers...I altered it a little but that is the beauty of acrylic stamps!

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Scattered Showers
paper- 7 Gypsies DP, kraft, black
ink- black, white craft, bashful blue reinker (for spatters)
accessories- hemp, clear EP (on umbrella)

Thanks for stopping by!

So clever, D. You are such a good thinker when it comes to challenges. Your trash makes great treasure!

Way cool, D. The newspaper background kinda looks like it's been out in the rain and the broken umbrella looks just like mine.:)
