Creeper Crew Tyler

Today is the day for some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team at Claudia & Company.  I decided to change things up and do a card for a boy since most of my projects tend to be girly.

I used Tyler from The Greeting Farm's Creepin Creeper Crew Kit and paired him up with papers from Studio Calico's State Fair collection.  I distressed the edges of all the papers and then sponged them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye.  The cardstock strips were embossed with a Distressed Stripes folder.  I added a few brads and a ribbon tab using some May Arts Wrinkle Ribbon (Ivory) that was also sponged with the Distress Ink.  Instead of my "normal" blonde, I tried out a new hair color for Tyler and I like it ~ it's not so yellow.  So I think I'm going to have to do a lot more playing with hair colors....I tend to use the same ones over and over.
