HLS Anything Goes With Dies

Here's my submission for the June Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies  contest:

I was practicing with my brush pens in the kitchen while the family was watching Mountain Monsters.  We all cracked up when we heard Huckleberry say this!

Supplies and notes:
  • Library catalog card base  with quote written with a brown Prismacolor brush pen... no technique here-- I scribbled the quote quickly when I heard it
  • The base was inked with Gathered Twigs DI, then smeared with some Walnut Stain DP, dabbed with some Deco Art turquoise metallic lustre, and spritzed with some moonshine. Just kidding.  I used water. 
  • The leaves were already in my die-cut box, cut with Tim's Alterations dies from a map and a piece of Prima paper from my buddy Andrea. I inked the edges with Gathered Twigs and thinly coated them with Ranger Crackle glaze
  • The ribbon is from Tuesday Morning, and the brad is from my stash. (If you've ever seen Mountain Monsters, this is my nod to the ever-present shotgun.)
