Grungy Monday #2


Grungy Monday #2 challenge was to watch t!ms video clip and use the same technique.  I digressed again, as he used distress inks and I used the stains.  I decided to use a different colour wave this time, peeled paint, faded jeans and dusty concord.  The resist stamped images are from the tattered florals and flourishes alteration range.  I stamped the main stampers anonymous image in walnut stain stain and the word giggle in dusty concord stain.  The lines were stamped with the scratches stamp in forest moss stain. I ripped the piece out and walnut stained the edges with the stain.

What a sweet and lovely card, Sam! The mix of colors you used is just gorgeous, and the Multi Medium resist looks wonderful! I love that it looks like a worn, weathered work of art, and the subtle stamping is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing it at Grungy Monday!

P.S. Give your sweet pup a smooch for me!
