Welcome snarky peeps! We have a new challenge starting today at the
Your letter for this fortnight is S for Silly!
That could mean an April Fools card, using a funny or punny sentiment/image, or
whatever snarky idea you can dream up.

Here's my take on the challenge:

In real life, this card is much more vibrant, but with my crack photography
skillz, it looks kinda washed out. Ugh. 
I used NBUS for the main panel, mainly some Dylusions spray inks. I used a stencil over that
and spritzed water, waited a few seconds and blotted up. You can just barely see it if you turn your head sideways and squint out of your left eye. Over that, another stencil, this time spritzing one of the Dylusions inks already used. I sponged black soot DI around the edges. heat embossed the sentiment,  and added the frame and Einstein. I felt it still needed more, so I broke out some grungy stamps and added some here and there. 
I can totally see Einstein saying Whassup? like in that beer commercial some years back. LOL!

Now's your turn to create something silly and link up at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! 
Be sure to check out what my Sisters in Snark dreamed up, and also our 
Queen and Guest Designer, Margo!
