A Little bit Grungy

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I went to Kath's yesterday for our usual crafting session.
Kath challenged me to make something grungy, I don't mind grungy but enjoy my pretty cards too.

Here is what I made, Kath gave me a piece of Kraft Card, Tag, String, Paper clip, Plasterer's bonding, Die cut umbrella man, distress inks and embossing powder and a Tim Holtz stamp set.


Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream square card.
2. The Kraft card I randomly stamped the butterflies with Versamark and embossed with Frantage aged wine, distressed around the card with my scissors then distressed the edges with DI Black Soot. Using the Plasterer's bonding I layered this onto the card. I then wrapped the string around and tied into a knot before matting and layering onto the base card
3. I stamped the flourish on the stamp using Dusty Concord, stamped the sentiment and embossed with gold embossing powder, distressed the edges scissors and DI Black Soot, added the string to the top. I attached the paper clip to the side and matted and layered with foam pads.
4. The umbrella man I distressed with seedless preserve the used Frantage aged black. I didn't cover all of the die cut but pleased with how it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

This may not seem your usual style, Linda, but I can still see your touches in it. :-D Love the umbrella man! It's great that you have bits of him untouched by the frantage. The embossed butterflies are marvelous.
