Hi everyone, I have completely forgot about Linda starting the new weekly chanllenge and I even missed the first one. At Studio L3 Grungy Mondays will be the name of the weekly challenge filled with techniques by Tim Holtz. In Grungy Monday 02 we visit Ranger Ink and try this technique: Distress Ink with Studio Multi Medium.
I wanted to make an altered envelope with a card for my friend's B'day, so I used the technique on the card and envelope as well.Here are some pictures:
I die-cut the bird from black foam and used as a stamp. The flower and moth are from PaperArtsy and the crackle stamp is from Crafty Individuals. I machine stiched a half of a tag for the address. Somehow I couldn't get better photoes than this, it doesn't give its justice. I used Gloss multi medium, so the bird has a shiny finish, it gives and interesting texture to it. I also cut the bird out from scrap paper, and used it as a mask when stamping the flowers and the crackles.
I used the same colours and stamps on the card. Here I stamped over the resist area with some Archival Coffe Ink. Here's a shot from the inside:
The tag is cut out from and envelope, I like the craft feel to it. I attached a stamped moth onto a paperclip and used it as a little embellishment inside. Here a closer pic:
I used office supplies to create my set and I'm entering this to the Gingersnap Challenge #94 .
Don't forget about our submission call over at Crafting Ireland.
That's all for today, I hope you like it, thanks for visiting,
