What is my Style?

Today I decided to go with a card and I am combining two challenges for this.  I always love a "Sketch Challenge" and that is exactly what Lisa has treated us to this week at Bloggers Challenge.  Simon Says Stamp and Show is "What Are You Known For?"  Now I was really scratching my head over that one and had left a comment on Anne's Redanne Blog.  Anne let me know that she thought I had a vintage style with a twist.  I suppose I am kind of Grungy Eclectic Vintage with a bit of humor!!  So here is my take on both challenges!

The background is Tim's folder inked, markered, clear embossed and torn.  The corrugated cardboard was cut with the ticket movers and shapers and I gobbed on some Rock Candy Crackle and then inked with Walnut Stain.  The car was cut and stamped with the had and of course clear embossed as cars do shine, except for those rusty junkers.  I ran red paint over the metal sentiment and then wiped off excess and then tied it all up!  Pretty much this was just for fun!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are having a wonderful week!
