 Hello everyone,

I was having a play over the weekend and last week actually, using some new dies and also made some grungy backgrounds with ink and paste, then decided the two could go together..

This was the first was brick wall stencil using modelling paste
then inked, just inked and water running down until it grungy and dirty,

Then a kraft panel [office manilla folder cut up] was stenciled with distress ink around the edges.

Then a good old splatter, then was ready for decorating..

Mmm..that had to wait for a bit..

Then the camera died..

So after quite a bit of playing around I had two photos salvaged..
The paint brush dies and flowers dripping instead of paint..

And turned into a get-well card..

It is pretty and grungy, I like that..

So, thank you so much for stopping by,
hope your weekend went well, and I'll see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx son fixed my camera and told me "Stop banging it onto the desk"..

Challenges to enter....

We love to Create mixed media   [anything goes]
