Rockin' Birthday for The Paper Players

Hello friends!  I've got a post tonight with a card for The Paper Players 400th challenge!  Woo Hoo!  Love this challenge and the awesome design team, so I knew I wanted to join in this party!

In keeping with the "Celebration" theme, my card was made for my middle grandson's birthday.  Sigh, who turns 16 later this week.  Where does the time go?  I made him a "rockin" grunge card I'm pretty sure he'll like.

Starting with a panel of Bristol paper, I ink blended several Distress inks, sprayed with water, flicked with black Gesso and when dry, heat embossed various images from an old Inkadinkado stamp set with silver embossing powder.  Next I inked up a couple of images from Stampin' Up's Timeless Textures and Gorgeous Grunge Black Soot Distress Ink and stamped them around the panel.  Finally, I distressed all the edges, used Black Soot to ink blend around the edges and adhered to a black card stock base.

Thanks so much for coming by and visiting, it's so appreciated!  I've added a link to the PP challenge above, so be sure to head over there and enjoy the great inspiration, plus there are still a few days to play along and there are prizes to be won!  Have a great week!
