Let's get down and dirty!

 Morning all.  Time for a new theme over at Cardz4guyz.  We want you to 'get dirty'.  Time to go a little grungy.  What could be more perfect for a guy card.  Now most of you know that I can't stand to get my hands dirty.  This is not my thing at all.  Saying that, I quite enjoyed this one.

I smeared some distress oxide ink onto a grey backing paper and then used my glue eraser tool to rough up some of the patches.  I screwed it up and distressed the edges before layering it onto my card blank.  I stamped the centre panel - do you know how hard it is not to stamp a perfect image when you want something to look messy - and adhered it to the front of my card. I had some little word panels that I couldn't resist adding and then dotted my die cut tools around the front.  I'm really pleased with the result.

Ok, time for you to get your hands dirty.

Thanks for reading.
