Today I'm adding a bit more Grunge to my blog - I enjoyed making the Grunge Paper Rose so much for my last card, I've been messing about with more GP, Distress Inks and chipboard. If you want to see some truly spectacular work, made with these products, do pop over to Wendy Vecchi's amazing blog HERE. Her work is fabulous.
So, here are my rather weak attempts with my new-found Grunge Paper, and boy have I enjoyed having a play!
The chipboard heart has been coloured with Distress Inks. Gingham background from Wendy Vecchi's "Nature's Art" stamp set, and an old tiny flower stamp used on the green section. The spotty flowers are from Papermania, stamped onto Grunge Paper, cut out and coloured with Distress Inks. Leaf spray also from the Wendy Vecchi set. Ribbons from my stash - dark brown wire bought from a local garden centre.
It's not very clear from the photos, but both projects have been spritzed here and there with a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls.
The card has been made with the same Wendy Vecchi stamp set - the butterfly wings have been layered and curled - the head is half of a really old press-stud I found in my sewing box - I've noticed they are quite fashionable on cards right now (and quite expensive) - whoever would have thought!!
The scallop chipboard is layered onto black card spritzed with the Perfect Pearls mixture. Base card - Core'dinations Cappucino.
Thanks so much for popping by - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
