Grungy Monday #4


Over on the Grungy Monday blog, week 4's challenge is texture fades and distress.  Having watched t!ms video I just had to have a go with my new mini texture fades.  I used the mini car off the plate Maz lent me, inked it up with walnut stain distress ink and stamped it onto the blank part of the folder.  I carefully placed a piece of card in the fold and snapped it shut, proceeded to put it through the big shot and emboss it.  As you can see it also transferred the ink from the folder onto the card.  I coloured the card with a blend of weathered wood and walnut stain distress inks.  I distressed the edges and coloured with walnut stain distress ink.

The background is the pocket watches texture fade swiped with weathered wood and edged with walnut stain distress inks.  I stamped the words in walnut stain ink.
