DCM little extra - Primary Colours

For Daring Cardmakers little extra this week,
we are daring you to make a card using the 3 Primary Colours,
RED, BLUE & YELLOW....You can either use 1, 2 or all three of these colours it's up to you..Thankfully Kathy let us use a bit of black & white is also LOL!
Oh dear.... i think I've caught the *GRUNGE* bug!....
seems that way after this card anyway...lol
but boy did I ever have fun, I got all painty.. and messy.. and got embossing powder everywhere....
Now I'm not silly I know this card wont be to everyones liking, but I like it ;o)
And I've decided I'm going to turn it into a little Drawing book for Lachlan, I'm just going to add some pages for him, with one of those metal slide fasteners.
Expressive bits I've used on my card are - Acrylic Paint - Red, Yellow, Blue, White & Black, Foam Alphabet stamps, Artistree -Joyride Stamps, Stampin Up Print Pattern BG stamp,Heavy Weight Drawing Paper, Black Cardstock, EK Success Alphabet Stamps, Dymo Marker, Maria George Crystals, Versa Black Ink, Versa Watermark ink, Black Embossing Powder, and my sewing machine.
So have you Dared to DARE yet?.... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!

Gillian.....how gorgeous is your banner.
I lurrrrrrve your card. It made me homesick for my Paper Artsy stamps which I haven't played with properly for ages.
Getting painty and messy is the part I like best.....I now have to go and bleach my hands....lol.
