A bit of Banksy

Hi Everyone
Well I'm day off today and for some reason was up and awake at the crack of dawn with the whole day ahead of me. Shall I tackle the ironing? the hoovering? the washing? Nah! I'm away to my craftroom. So I have made a quick card Banksy inspired card this morning.

My background is made from graduating distress inks through a square stencil and I masked off some of the squares as I wanted the background to look like a graphic equalizer like we all had on those big stack stereo's. the main Banksy Image is "Getto Blaster" by Bee Crafty.
Other stamps are arrows - Halftone basics Waltzing Mouse Stamps
Sound Waves - Unity Stamps
Sentiment - Loud Music by Indigoblu
 All mat and layered onto a 7" x 7" card blank
Hope you like it and I really now have to go and tackle my earlier list, sigh!!
