Franken Schmutz

SCHMUTZ:  A term used by Jewish mothers to let you know you that you have some kind of unidentifiable substance on your face.

I used my Franken Schmutz stamp set and watercolored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  I used two different green inks, (mowed lawn & twisted citron) so "Frank" would look more stitched about the epitome of SCHMUTZ!  

Then I used the matching Franken Schmutz dies to cut him out and adhered him flat on the card. I popped up the word bubble sentiment on foam tape for differences in dimension. 

I colored his neck bolt and buttons with a silver Sharpie pen and purposely colored each hand a different shade of green, because, isn't it obvious, they are from two different cadavers of course.(teehee...yes I'm a total geek).

I added a strip of stripped paper...(strip of stripped?!) to complete the card.
