Distress Christmas Rose

This is a card Vicky made during our recent Hochanda shows.
Using our Grunge Background which Vicky inked with Mowed Lawn
and Festive Berries Distress inkpads.

Vicky then stamped and watercoloured 2 of our Grunge Flowers in Festive Berries.
Using the largest image from Grunge set 3, which she stamped in Mowed Lawn, Vicky then cut this to form the shape of the leaves and layered them behind the flowers making them look a little like a Christmas Rose.

Distress & Grunge

Did you see our shows on Hochanda last week using our Grunge stamps along with our Distressed Alphabet and Numbers?
Here is one of the cards I made during the show.
I covered the background with Distress Peeled Paint and Dusty Concord and then stamped some of our Grunge stamps in various Distress colours like Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron and Fossilized Amber.

I stamped the Grunge Flower in Black Archival and then used a waterbrush filled with bleach to paint it, which removes the colour but not the patterns.
I then painted over with some pink.
The Distressed Alphabet letters were stamped in Pink and if you look closely you can see I sketched a black line just around the inside the of the letters - a little trick that Lesley showed me.
