CCC Challenge, we're trying the Weathered Wood Grunge Technique from Tim Holtz's fantastic Compendium of Curiosities book. I had high hopes for mine....unfortunately, I couldn't get the outcome to match the image that was in my mind. Oh well, at least I tried it!
Grunge Paper that was embossed using the Bingo Texture Fade embossing folder. The focal point of this card is the little clown girl - I love this image so much! She's a little photo-realistic rubber stamp from the Playful collection by Oxford Impressions (It's hard to believe that's a rubber stamp!). I highlighted her costume with small dots of Fired Brick Distress Stickles. This is the perfect example of how the Distress Stickles work so well with a vintage-look card. They give a nice, subtle sparkle.
The flower was created by cutting a paper-covered piece of Grungeboard and crepe paper using the Tattered Florals die. The pieces were layered and topped with a circle punched from Tim Holtz's Lost and Found paper. The bottom of the card is trimmed with a strip from the same paper, along with Tissue Tape and an Adage Ticket tied with waxed linen thread.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I can't wait to see what my fellow Challengeers (yes, that's a word, I just made it up) come up with!
