Feeling Foolish!!!

That's how we're feeling over at Raise The Bar this week, we're feeling April Foolish tehe!! Want to know what this weeks challenge is?  Here goes...

APRIL FOOL!
Show us a style that you normally don't do! Ack! A challenge indeed! ;) 

Now this really was a challenge for me, I've spent ages thinking about it, and couldn't decide what sort of card i wanted to do, the only thing i knew was i wanted to make a card that i could happily post on here, and not one that i wanted to bin straight away!

I finally decided to go back to some of my old favourite rubber stamps for inspiration.  I love Art, so have quite a few art inspired rubberstamps; so i went through my 'Mona' collection and came across this stamp, that i'd never used.  I then decided to stamp this image using a multicoloured inkpad (something else i don't do very often) and emboss it.  

For my background I can honestly say I cheated!; I sprayed a scrap of white card with water, and then stamped my 'dirty' stamp onto it.  The cheats way to clean your stamp and create a background, lol!  

I decided to keep my layout as simple as possible.  I limited myself to using just the background paper I had made, and my main image.  I cut my background paper up to create a mosaic style background.  I then trimmed my main image, distressed the edges and stuck it to the card.  For my finishing touches I decided to add a few staples, these are dual purpose, as they ensure my image stays on the card, and add just a little decorative touch.

Now the big question, Did I Fool You?  Would you have known it was a 'Suzi' card?  I'd love to hear your answers.  Hope you all have time this week to join in our challenge, it is a toughie, but I sure had fun with it, hope you do too.

Thanks for visiting

AWESOME! This is definitely not a card I'd have pegged as a "suzi' card but it's definitely a work of art and LOVE that you branched out and tried something different! Great card, my friend!
