Camouflage Technique

When my son saw this card, he really liked it (usually he could care less).  So, I guess it's a good "guy" card.

This technique is called camouflage, that was taught at a recent Stampin' Up! regional conference. 

Very Vanilla CS 3-3/4 x 5
Sahara Sand Ink Pad
Old Olive Ink Ink Pad
Always Artichoke Ink Pad
Soft Suede Ink Pad

Rubbing Alcohol in spritz bottle 
Bone folder 
Jumbo Eyelets and Crop-A-Dile 
Always Artichoke card stock (8-1/2 x 5-1/2)
Crumb Cake card stock (5-1/4 x 4)

Step 1:    Using ink pad, cover Very Vanilla card stock completely with Sahara Sand
Step 2:    Scrunch card stock between hands in both directions
Step 3:    Open card stock
Step 4:    Ink up paper with Old Olive ink pad. Leave some areas uncovered
Step 5:    Spritz with alcohol and scrunch lightly, open carefully
Step 6:    Ink over Always Artichoke ink pad
Step 7:    Ink over with Soft Suede ink pad
Step 8:    Spritz again lightly with rubbing alcohol
Step 9:    Turn card stock face done and run Bone Folder over the back of card stock
Step 10:   Allow to dry
Step 11:   If you feel you need more color, add what you need using either a sponge or ink pad.
               Spritz again and allow to dry
