GRUNGE!




Wow it's already time for another ATCAS challenge!  Challenge 37 is hosted by our fearless leader Kylie and she chose the code word to be: GRUNGE:

Our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps:


Anita our guest designer joins us again this week so don't forget to stop at the ATCAS challenge blog to see what she has created along with the rest of the design team!

This was certainly a challenge for me and I searched through galleries of "grunge" cards until I felt I got the hang of making one.  I used a stamp set from Rubbernecker called Scuffs, Scraps and Stains and Hero Arts Shadow inks for the "grunge" images .  The flowers are from Stampendous and the sentiment is from another Rubbernecker set called Layered Flowers.

I chose to use these colors so I could play in the Color Me Playful Challenge:


Thanks for coming by!

  18. I had the same problem, 'what exactly means GRUNGE!' - so I am searching through the entries and DT-work to get the feel. Your card in colors in combination with the black flower looks just amazing! Thanks for sharing.
