Another offering for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges-this is for Karen's challenge and another CASE for the QFTD review. This is a CASE of a fun card by Queen Gabby/gabalot. I used the same die as her and used a print dp similar to her newsprint stamping. I also used a twine and staple treatment along the side as she did. I made a bg piece by wetting watercolor paper thoroughly then splattering with pink ink. I dried it then added some blue spatter. The pink & blue were also spattered and dripped on the man, umbrella and dp. I pieced the umbrella in dp from the flip side of the paper. I was just going to use the darker green for the handle and hat, but ended up liking the effect of the piece that resulted with a scrap on the die! I didn't add a sentiment because I'm not quite sure what this card says! I'm really not sure whether it is an arty card or just a hot mess!

What a FAB mixed media card, Gail! Like the bkgrd you created and the multi-pattern, stamped strip. And ... ya know I LOVE the UM! I like the way you took it a step further w/the solid portion up to the top of the umbrella. Gave me an idea. :) Please note that I tried to keep looking in my QFTD gallery and commenting, but this card and one other were added after I last looked. I was so overwhelmed to see 66 cards in the gallery! Every time I thought there would be no more, more were added. I was/am so humbled and blessed by that. Glad I looked back just now to find yours, Gail. Have a Terrific Tuesday! :)
