GM 32 meets SSS&S and MM

Hi everyone,

Despite my busy schedule this week, I wanted to join a number of challenges. For this reason I decided to combine the three challenges in one card. With this card, I participate with Grungy Monday, Said Simon and Stamp Show and Mojo Monday. It's been a long time that I participated in Mojo Monday and I thought it was long overdue!

The theme of Grungy Monday 32 is using a technique that Tim used in the last 12 tags of Christmas and  is sponsered by Simon Says Stamp! The technique I did is from tag 2, the painting, sanding and inking the grungeboard (in my case grunge paper). Before the 12 tags I've used sandpaper only for sanding kraft paper and  co'ordinations cardstock. At Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenges is using red letter. I think it has more meaning than I know of, but I've taken it literally. Mojo Monday has a beautiful layout that I wanted to make.

Below are all the materials and tools I've used this card.

Black soot - Distress ink
Barn Door - Distress ink
Frayed Burlap - Distress ink
Cardstock white with linnen structure
Gadget Gears - Alterations
