PCJ Challenge #11 - Anything Goes and/or your Favourite Technique

Well the last couple of weeks have been trying due to a lot of blogger issues and the commenting issue is still not resolved as I write this!!!It's taking me forever to get this post written due to not being able to upload photos so I've had to go through Picasa and blog via that method! If comments have not been left on your PCJ challenge #10 Get well soon entry then it is possible that we could not find your post due to blogger removing it or because we just ca't leave comments!! All the entries were fantastic, so thank you for sharing!!!
So with that said... it's time for challenge #11 - Anything Goes and/or your favourite technique!!! We are kindly being sponsored by the very generous Craftie Charlie and boy wait to see what the prize is that is on offer!!.

Craftie Charlie is an online UK store owned by two longtime friends selling scrapbooking, cardmaking and general craft items. And here is a sample of what they sell:

Pretty awesome stuff hey!! Well guess what??? This is the prize that is on offer for this challenge!! I know... WOW!!!

So what is my favourite technique? I had to really think about this challenge and it took me awhile to decide what I wanted to do but in the end I went back to what I love the most (although I haven't done it for ages) is distressing and paper tearing!!! I love that whole grunge look and I think that look suits this stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps - Lil Lad Damon.

I made another side easel card, I just love how these cards look!!!

Posted by Picasa
I coloured the image in with Aqua crayons, then used a bit of distress ink over the top of it!! I used ivory card stock and distressed that with walnut stain distress ink, added the brown cardstock. The music paper is from Kaszazz which I also distressed. I added some buttons with rafia and the sentiment is also from TPS as is the guitar on the inside of the card!!. I'm not usually great at making cards for guys but I think this one ROCKS!!!
