The Journey to Grungy Monday #2
If you haven't been to Linda's StudioL3 yet, you ought to pop on in. She's hosting Grungy Mondays and it's all about playing with techniques -- Tim Holtz style. This week I'm playing with Claudine Hellmuth's multi-medium matte and distress inks. This is a technique I hadn't tried before today, but I found it was both easy & fun to do -- Linda posted a video link for this tutorial, presented by Tim Holtz (of course), on her blog. One of the things I really like about Tim Holtz is that his tutorials are so easy to follow! He does everything step by step, and explains what he is doing so even inexperienced crafters can follow along.
For my card I used a portion of scrapbook paper that had a larger image of Rome's Colosseum on it. The stamps I used are by TH: old jalopy, flock of birds, & journey quote. Several distress inks were used: stormy sky, forest moss, weathered wood, & pumice stone. I also used brown corduroy distress ink to "grunge" up the silky ribbon. I heat embossed my quote using VersaMark & Zing black embossing powder, and added a steering wheel gear & TH game spinner to finish it off before adding it to a ripped blue & green cardstock mat. Attached it to a brown card, and there ya have it.
Thanks for popping in again. See ya soon...Lisa
