Today, my DT and I are inviting you to Inkspirational Challenge #86~Designer's Choice, as selected by our sweet Sandie ...
Grunge is characterized by distressed, worn-out elements and the use of subtle or earthy colours. Think torn edges, textured backgrounds, 'dirty' appearance, splatters, stains, even hand-drawn lines. That said, grunge doesn't always mean "dirty" or subdued colours. A card can have subtle grunge elements in light or soft ink and yet still look clean and simple. Just think of grunge as the opposite of "polished".
My card features some new STAMPlorations stencils and stamps that arrived in my mailbox recently: Bloom Factory and its companion, Bloom Factory - ARTplorations Stencil. I used the dotted stamp from Mixed Media Grunge and the sentiment from the recently released, Party Time sentiments set. Oh, the joys of being a STAMPlorations stamp club member...all kinds of cool things to welcome int my collection!
So...simple grunge that I know *you* can do with supplies you have on hand! Showcase your grungy style by joining us in the Inkspirational gallery! The winner will be invited as a Guest Designer n a future challenge.
