Here's a grungy card I whipped up. Not my usual style, but I like it.
The background is the Tweed Pattern Stamp from Hero Arts. I just used some white pigment ink over grey cardstock and it came out beautifully.
I rounded the top left corners of both layers on a 1/2 inch setting with my Corner Chomper.
The little bird is a brad I purchased from Oriental Trading.
The sentiment and large arrow are rub ons from 3 birds I purchased a long time ago and am trying to use up.
The green button is from the $1 section at Michael's. The blue button is from Stampin' Up and was free during the last Sale-a-bration. Both of them are threaded with some embroidery floss.
I used some chevron washi along the bottom of the kraft layer.
The little clothespin meant I needed to put the kraft layer up on pop dots, but I like the look of pop dots anyhow so that was no big deal.
I used some mirrored and regular sprarkly gems from Irock.
I used a large white brad from my stash.
I used the Papertrey ink set Grunge me to create some splatter effects on the kraft layer.
I used some Bisque colored liquid pearls as well.
There's so much going on here so I hope I listed anything you may have wondered about.
My daughter went crazy for this, my husband was polite - but I could tell he hated it! *LOL* Personally I really like it. I'm not sure if I'm any good at this type of style or not, but I sure had fun trying. The worst thing that can happen is a little paper in the trash - so don't be afraid to experiment, you just may like what you come up with :)
Thanks for visiting me :)
