A Little Graffiti

Hellohellohello! It's Friday, so that must mean it's Sassy Studio Designs time! Today I have a little rock-n-rolla for ya. This is Rockin' Roxie, and she spray painted the walls for you!


I was looking for a grungy feel - crumpled up the yellow paper at the bottom and inked the creases. Both the brick wall and the yellow papers were distressed with scissors (def. need to find a real distresser!) and wrapped with Bazzill tulle (found here). The graffiti is printed directly onto the paper and enhanced with Glossy Accents.

My last two cards posted seem to be wildly different from the type of card I *want* to make... I really need to pull out the lace and flowers!

I love it! The stamp is so cute--reminds me of me a few years back. ;-) Another good 'tool' for distressing is sand paper! The finer the better. Too rough will destroy the paper. ^_^
