I am participating in my very first Club Anya and Friends Challenge! There was just NO WAY I could pass this one up! It’s all about “Gettin’ Punky!” No, not Punky Brewster. Like real punk. Think CBGB, Rancid, London, Anarchy…get the picture? Check out my rockin’ card! I really love how this turned out. I worked my tail off on this one, and it turned out just how I wanted. I lamented over the paper for so long…ask my husband (who by the way, was totally helpful! Thanks, Babe!). I colored in Miss Ebony fairly quickly… but the paper…oh the paper! It was tough. I knew what I wanted (kind of) but couldn’t find it. Then, it all came together! Now, it was suggested we add metal embellishments. Perfect! I knew I needed to do that anyway. I added jump rings to my eyelets, and take a close look at Ebony to see where I added them to her! Please click on the pics for a better look. It’s tough to see what I did with a small photo. I gave her earrings! I really wanted to give her like, 4 or 5 up one side… but her ears don’t show! So that was out. But I LOVE how she looks with those cool silver hoops! I also gave her a teeny bit of glitz on her eyes. Not too much though… punks are so NOT about the glitter! You can see I threw on a couple of staples, and of course I just HAD to put the Anarchy symbol on here as well! I thought about distressing the card a bit, but I decided that was no the “punk way”. We’re not doin’ grunge here! You can see here that I cut one of the skulls out of this sick Basic Grey paper (BG! I know! It’s crazy!), and pop dotted it. With the other skull, I cut around the top of it so that I could place my skull and crossbones paper (Rusty Pickle) under it. I didn’t want to lose them under the other paper… they just had to show! They were one of the reasons I chose this paper, so that’s how I remedied that problem. So, what do YOU think? Is it punk enough? What do you think of Ebony’s hair? I love it, and I’m thinkin’ I just may need to put green in my hair again! It has been such a looong time! And this blonde I am currently sportin’ (since the teal has rinsed away) needs to GO! But I digress… enjoy the card, and have an inspiring day!

This is wicked cool, Ali! But it's missing one thing. You should've drawn tats on her arm!!!! Love the earrings. That was a cool idea!

Love it! It's funny, I was wearing my Rancid shirt yesterday.:) I really love the green eyelets with the hoops through them! Awesome!
Awesome card. She needs an eye brow ring too. GREAT idea.
Love, love, love it! This is amazing. The brads with the rings…perfection! If I ever get around to making this, I will Ebony too! She is my fave!
I LOVE it!! Love her green hair and the jump rings in the eyelets (I am always looking for other things to do with those tons of eyelets I just had to have…) Very cool card! :-)Traci
