Boom Boom Pow + Practical Scrappers White core Cardstock Challenge


Practical Scrappers' challenge this week is to use white core cardstock........so out comes the DCWV. I used a pretty teal piece from Indian Summer as the background.....distressed the edges with sandpaper....added a teal patterned paper from the "stash" and took a piece of red from last year's Christmas stack....ripped the edges....and added a distressed star effect for the rest of the background. I placed chipboard stars of varying shapes under the cardstock and went over it with sandpaper. The sign is cut from George at 5 1/2" and 5"....added thickers and distressed the cardstock with sand paper. The "POW" is from Indie Art....cut at 4 1/2" in white and teal....distressed and inked with silver metallic ink....and cut the "POW!" out of silver metallic paper. Attached it with pop dots. The photo is matted with teal star paper. Found a green chipboard arrow I liked...so I covered it with some striped paper to match. Cut double stars from George in varying sizes....distressed them with more sandpaper....and layered with pop dots. Picture is "Boom Boom" Brown on Halloween!   Head on over to Practical Scrappers and join in the fun!

Thanks for coming by to see my stuff! I love your layout, my favorite part is the stars underneath the paper and then sanding. How cool is that??
