ATCAS #37

I've been playing around with a new technique this morning and will have that to show tomorrow.  Today I have a card for Addicted to CAS.  I haven't played with them for a while but the code word intrigued me.


I haven't actually done grunge but the style fascinates me so I thought I'd give it a try.


I have a feeling I kind of overdid this one so maybe it's not clean (can grunge really be clean? lol) but it was simple.  I used a couple of Tim Holtz stencils, first the splatter and then the burlap, with Distress Inks.  I also used a Tim Holtz stamp in a couple of places. See what I mean by overdo?  The sentiment is from PTI Building Blocks that I stamped in HA Charcoal on paper that I inked with Dusty Lilac to match the splotch.   The panel is framed with some PTI Smokey Gray.

I have to get back to playing with ink before I go to knitting this afternoon.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully creative day.

  1. Your grunge is spot on in my book. Great color choices too. Okay, so you quilt, make cards, AND knit?! Dang girl! How do you ever choose what to do???! Well, in my world, I'd vote for cards; you do them so well. Have a great weekend! Bev

  8. Super card! I've done some grunge projects at my Stampin' Up classes (which turn out wonderfully) but when I try things at home on my own, they just look a mess. You've done a fabulous job! Love the purples too!
