Sorry That Stinks!

Hello!

Today i have a card i made for The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers G is for Grey Challenge. I was visiting One Crafty Mama, aka Jessi and i saw Jessi's card, saw the challenge and went straight to my craft table! Grey is perfect for the cute little skunk in The Alley Way Stamps new stamp set Stumped. And of course the set wouldn;t be complete with a little snarky sentiment!!!

I started by pulling out a few different shades of grey card stock. I trimmed the paper (they were 12 x 12 sheets) down to two inches wide. I laid the strips on a white card base and after playing around with them i decided to have each color get smaller as i went up the card base.

Next i cut a circle from white card stock, i stamped the skunk with black memento. Then i colored him with a black inktense pencil and a copic colorless blender. I stamped that stinks above him, along with a ! from the stamp set Prehistoric.

I found a wood speech bubble and stamped Sorry, masking off the ! at the end of the sentiment. Then i found a heart wood piece and added some black glitter to it. While that was drying i saw that i had a smudge on the card stock, so i found some small grey and black dots. I added everything to the card base and way-la, a card with a few shades of grey at least!
