Neutral Colours


Over at Art Journey they have the theme of neutral colours so I was able to join in this month with my AJ grunge plate of stamps.  I used timber brown stazon for the main image and then various colours of distress inks for the background images.  To make it look more natural and distressed I used a paper distresser around the edges and inked it with walnut stain.  The backing is a piece of kraft card coloured with walnut stain and again distressed the edges.

Oh, well, you know I love a neutral palette (though even that changes sometimes - as you've just seen over at W&P!))... and I love the grungy feel of this - amazing stamping!
