Greetings everyone.  I wanted to start the week playing with some of the new Seth Apter designs.  Before I did though, I stamped some white cardstock with the Distressed Denim Cover a Card background using Impression Obsession Baby Blue ink.  I then sponged the left side and bottom of the card with some dark blue Pan Pastel chalk.
Layered on top of the background, I added the Numbered and Net Result border stamps to the side using Impression Obsession Black ink.  On the right side, I added the Atlas and Saturn circles in the same black ink.  .  
Next, I used an older sentiment (My Brain) that unfortunately describes me pretty accurately as of late.  I also thought it worked well with the style of Seth's images.  To finish the card, I added some white gel pen highlights.  Here is a close up of the background and sentiment:

Don't forget to hop on by the other designers for more chances to win.  Good luck!

Love the sentiment! I think it also describes me and a few of my friends. I think the combination of stamps you used agree with the brain in question. I never thought of using pan pastel chalks on top of ink. Thanks for the idea! Your card really made me laugh. Thank you.

Great sentiment for those of us whose plate is more than full. I love how you distressed and used all kinds of stamps to bring out the fuzz of a brain on overload. The white gel pen, knocks it out of the park!
