Lots of grunge…some sparkle…some distressing…that pretty much sums up my hubby’s card for Father’s Day this year.
Pulled out a piece of designer paper from my stash and distressed the heck out of it. Then I added some light modeling paste through a stencil, followed by some graphite texture paste through another stencil. When all that was dry, I added the grungy little hearts which I’ve stamped with archival ink, painted with my fingers, added a bit of marker and then sanded lightly. Whew! That’s a whole lot going on to those two tiny hearts *big grin*.
Here’s what I used:
Paper: Simon Says Stamp and SU!
Ink: Watering Can archival ink
Stamps: STAMPlorations Trendy Birds
All the other stuff: distressing tool, light modeling paste, ARTplorations X marks the Spot stencil, ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil, Art Extravagance graphite texture paste, spatula, Prima Shabby Chic Treasures hearts, red acrylic paint, marker
