You Rock to the Extreme

LOL. Catchy title huh?  I like how this card turned out.  I was inspired by the card on page 89 in the SU 2010/2011 catalog.

Using one of my favorite stamp sets from SU, Extreme Elements.

 (sorry about the lighting)

A very simple but effective technique that I like to use is wading up a small amount of tissue paper, then dabbing it on the ink pad, then dabbing the inked tissue paper onto the cardstock. You like?? I do. 

On this card, I did that for the card base but not the strip behind the Real Red strip of cardstock.

cardstock: Stampin UP Not Quite Navy, Real Red, Crumb Cake
ink: SU Not Quite Navy, Real Red, Crumb Cake
stamp: SU Extreme Elements, Extreme Guitar, Just Jawing
