Oops! Guess who forgot to schedule their challenge post for the new one today over at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog!
The new one for the next 2 weeks is to get All Grungy which I loved as it's a favourite thing of mine to do. I decided on a tag this time on one of the fab MDF tags from That's Crafty! surfaces range and hope you like what I did.
I first brayered white gesso on the tag and when dry, used the That's Crafty! Bubble Wrap Dinky Stencil with texture paste to add rough detail in opposite corners. I didn't do it carefully in keeping with the grunge theme.
I then roughly applied turquoise, green and yellows acrylic paints in sort of smeared verticaal stripes over the surface, repeating until I was happy with the effect. I next dabbed yellow and orange paint over the raised texture paste patter.
When the paint was completely dry, I stamped the Visible Image text on with Archival Watering Can ink and also added a little stencilling with the same ink using the Diamond Circles Dinky Stencil.
I stamped the Carabelle Studio butterflies on thick cartridge paper with Archival Jet Black ink and painted them with Fossilised Amber Distress ink. I added the cut out images to the tag to finish.
There's a great prize just for entering so do give it a go if you can - there's some amazing new goodies in the online shop so you'll be spoilt for choice.
Have a lovely weekend,
