Live Life Loud

Last weekend, I made a couple of birthday cards for a colleague at work.  One was for her little brother who is in his early twenties and loves music and playing drums.  As soon as she told me that, I knew I wanted to make a grunge-style card.  I had a couple of new stamp sets from Gina K Designs called Live Life Loud and Gleefully Yours and knew these would be perfect.  Some Papertrey Ripe Avocado Paper and I was good to go:

And here is the inside:

I just love how this turned out.  And it's really turned me on to grunge-style.  I can't wait to get the Papertrey April release stamps as they include more grunge-style elements.

Cardstock: PTI Ripe Avocado and Smokey Shadow, Georgia-Pacific white
Stamps: Gina K Designs Live Life Loud and Gleefully Yours, PTI Birthday Basics
Ink: Versamagic Watermark, Memento Tuxedo Black, Tin Holtz Distress Pumice Stone
Other: Tim Holtz blending and paper distressing tools
