details here.) I recently bought some grunge paper and fragments and thought this was a great opportunity to try something a bit different.
I stamped the photograph image onto cream card and affixed it to the fragments with glossy accents. I distressed the other side of the fragments with alcohol ink (latte, espresso and ginger). I also stamped the film reel image onto acetate and distressed it with alcohol ink. I love these stamps - the first time I've used them and I'm sure I'll use them lots! They are the Lost and Found set from Tim Holtz.
The cogs and sprockets are also from Ranger. I die cut a couple of flowers (from the Tattered Floral dies from Sizzix) out of Patterned paper and also out of grunge paper and glued the two together. The screw brad is from Creative Expressions.
The paper is from the Prima Printery pad and is just scrumalicious! It's all been distressed with tea dye and walnut stain distress ink.
I had a great time making this card; it was such a nice change from making 'pretty' cards. I wish I could make really great 'distressed' cards - more practice needed I think. Still, I had a great time and that's the main thing!
So glad I 'happened across' the Stamp Man Challenge Blog! Hugs, Jayne xx
