Blue Jean Pocket

 This was a crazy busy Friday and I kicked up some dust trying to get everything accomplished.
Gingersnap Creations    GC104: Color Challenge- Denim, Rust, and, Dust

I haven't taken the time to show many of the insides of my cards lately, so here's the tag from the front and the inside finished out.
On the image on the inside I used the rock 'n roll technique, ink up the stamp with one color then roll the edges around on the second color, I didn't know if it would work with these dark colors, but, I'm very pleased with the two-tone effect. I ruffed up the edges and direct to paper hit and dragged around for an aged look.
I know some Buckaroos who can kick up some dust on their birthdays ;-)

OH, this is too cool - I really thought that was denim, awesome technique! Yes, this came out really well and will make someone very happy. I am back and forth on finishing the insides of my cards, I think it is more of a time thing than desire - but it really adds that extra finishing touch doesn't it?
