I amazed as I am actually on time for a grungy monday challenge, my first ever!
I decided not to do a card or tag this time and to decorate a little notebook I had bought to alter, so here it is....
I crackled the cover and then added distress inks in milled lavender and dusty concord.
Once dry, I overstamped in dusty concord with a flower head stamp.Then when dry I added distress stickles in milled lavender.
The flower was made using tattered floral die, cut from old book pages and coloured using distress stain in dusty concord and milled lavender distress ink(I haven't got stain yet ... but I will!!!). Then I added some bling, with little gems.
The butterflies, again Tim holtz, were stamped onto grungepaper with archival black ink, coloured with distress stain and when dry painted with distress stickles to give smoother finish.
Once dry the background of the book was stamped using black distress ink and a Tim flourish.
The sentiment is again, you've guessed a Tim Holtz one and I love it!
Hope you like it and I am entering this for the following competitions:
