As I said yesterday, I just LOVE the grunge products! Fortunately the theme for this week's challenge on the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog is also grunge. Woohoo!
Here I've chosen a small ivory moire silk bridal place card holder found in the clearance aisle at Michaels. These make such nice little frames for your art...not just for place cards or photos. The corner piece isn't Tim's but one I found in my lss. The grungeboard flourishes were from one of Tim's packages and colored with various yellow and green distress inks. The larger leaves are grungepaper cut with a Sizzix die - more yellow and green distress inks, then finger distressed. The fern punch outs are courtesy of Martha Stewart and some patterned cardstock scraps.
Tim's Tattered Florals and Wendy's rose stamp make up the grunge flowers, using various red distress inks (front and back) then overstamped with several of Wendy's background stamps (front and back). Tim's washers are underneath the small buttons and are threaded with gold wire (more specifically, I cut up a Christmas tree ornament hanger) then attached to the grungepaper flower.
Wendy's tattered houndstooth background was stamped on ivory cardstock for the oval opening in the center. Her sentiment was stamped in red & brown archival inks for more depth and a bit of a shadow. The red oval was a die cut from a large box I bought at A. C. Moore's a very, very long time ago and fits this opening perfectly!
Tim's memo pin with Wendy's Glossy Accents technique is tucked in behind the larger rose. I did have to resort to a Hero Arts alpha stamp and black archival ink for the initial.
