Graffiti Blog Hop Time

I've been having a great time playing with Graffiti . . . did you know this collection goes with almost everything? To prove my point, check out the cards I whipped up this week:

With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought I'd see how well the Graffiti Stencil and the Love Bites stamps would play together. I think it's a match made in heaven!

I thought this card would be fun for my niece who turns 17 on Saturday. You might not notice it right away, but the background stamp on this card is a border stamp from the Hopes FontArt UM. It reminded me of chain link fencing. Cool eh?

I just love that Graffiti Art stamp, and it was perfect for this resist technique with the Green and Blue Neon Ink Pads. I paired it with a sentiment stamp from the Fire & Ice FontArt UM.

Can you guess what vintage kit elements I used for this card? You might not recognize them right away. I started with a Graffiti Print panel, overstamped with a huge text stamp from Up, Up & Away. Then I used white acrylic paint with the circle pattern on Fizz Stencil. I traced the arrow image from the Mirror, Mirror Stencil onto Graffiti pink, and cut it out with a craft knife. Finally Fizz pink brads added just the right finishing touch.

I encourage you to see what mixin' and matchin' you can do with your Graffiti kit and collections from the past. It's great fun!
