The Key to Failure


Tonight I went over to a friends for our stamping night.  We get together once a month, and take turns showing different techniques or just teaching a project.  We also do a card exchange and set a theme.  This months theme was chipboard/grundge board.  I felt instant panic!  I don’t usually work with either of these products, but I did buy hmmm…a bit of it! lol  Anyway, once I got over my panic, I set about trying to figure out what to do.


I went with a very simple card, using cream cardstock, and basic stamping and sponging.  I used a grundge board key, and painted it with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  I bought a couple bottles a while back and had never tried it.  I LIKE IT! lol  I stamped the background and sponged distress inks over it, and went over a few parts with the Tim Holtz essentials white pen.  I then did the same with the sentiment, and ran it through the cuttlebug using the Labels 4 from Spellbinders.  I did a bit of sponging with the die still on, took it off and did the edges a different colour, then went around the edges with the white gel pen.  I guess over all I am ok with this card! lol

Have a wonderful day!
