Something Beginning with A at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's challenge time again at Cardz 4 Guyz, and today Helen has chosen "Something Beginning with A"

I decided to use A is for Army, and printed out this pyramage topper from the La Pashe CD "Something for everyone" and backing paper from La Pashe's "Flippin families". I was hoping to find a bit of camouflage fabric among Mark's old Army kit, but it's over 30 years now since he left the army and he doesn't have any left, so I made my own by daubing distress inks in greens and browns on a scrap of hessian. The textured paper is from a DCWV pad and I've used various shades of grey for the layering.


I am sharing this with
Something for the big or biggest boy at Shopping Our Stash
