Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin’ Up!
I had the perfect opportunity this weekend to get out one of my all time favourite stamp sets, Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin’ Up! and it’s the star of the show this time, not just lurking in the background! I’m playing along with Less is More’s Week 280 challenge which is themed “Splatters”. As soon as I saw the theme, I knew it just had to be Gorgeous Grunge.
It was a lovely sunny day on Saturday when I was making this card and that influenced my choice of colours I think. I decided to create something similar to my blog header. I used the Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay but changed Smoky Slate to Daffodil Delight for a much brighter look!
The little butterflies are from Garden in Bloom and the sentiment and underlining dots are from Sunnburst Sayings, which I’ve not really used much. I will have to do something about that!
I heat embossed the sentiment in the dots using clear embossing powder, by first inking up my stamps with Versamark and then Memento Tuxedo Black. When you stamp the black ink goes on first and the Versamark ends up on top so the powder sticks to it! Clever hey!! 🙂
Well I hope you like my bright and cheerful card! I do but then I’m biased aren’t I? Lol!
