I hit the trifecta!!!

Well, not really but I do think I scored big with this entry that meets the requirements for three challenges.  Linda's Grungy Monday was using the Ranger Adirondack Colorwash Stains, Simon Says Stamp & Blog wanted some Distressing, and the ninth challenge for the EverythingWendyVecchi Yahoo group needed at least 3 buttons and some dimensional grungepaper or grungeboard objects (the inspiration piece can be found in Book 1, page 24--a card).
I started off with a chipboard square; painted it with Mushroom Acrylic Paint Dabber; stamped on it using Snow Cap Acrylic Paint Dabber.  Let's see...Tim's Tissue Tape frames the stamped background, edged in Gold Paint Dabber.

Ranger:  Colorwash Stains on the watercolor paper flowers and leaves: Butterscotch, Pesto, Lettuce, Denim, Eggplant, Wild Plum;  Archival inks: Olive, Jet Black; Distress Stickles: Old Paper; Distress Crackle Paint: Picket Fence; Distress Inks: Brushed Corduroy, Black Soot, Walnut Stain, Vintage Paper, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick; Enamel Accents: Black

Tim Holtz:  Tattered Florals, Hanging Sign, Caged Bird Sizzix dies; stamp from Adverts, Sheet Music embossing folder

Wendy Vecchi: stamps from Art-Fully Said, Art Fit for a Queen, Make Mine Mini Art

Maya Road: Jonathan Mini chipboard alphabet

Martha Stewart: green silk ribbon

So, there's defiinitely plenty of color stains, lots of distressing with paints, glitters, inks and my fingers, more than 3 buttons and several grungepaper dimensional elements.  Ta da!
