Stamp Review Crew: Gorgeous Grunge Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2014/02/stamp-review-crew-gorgeous-grunge.html
Wow, this is the 6th Edition of the Stamp Review Crew already, can you believe it?! We are so ready to provide you with a load of surprising ways to use this set :) Don't forget, you can always get to the landing zone for this hop here so if you get lost, it will get you back on track.

If you are following in order, you have just arrived from Adriana's blog with her grunge gorgeous projects!

 This card combines a couple of techniques, Emboss Resist, and and Inked Acrylic Block to achieve a watercolored look. I have to admit, I had to sponge a bit to fill in all of the block, and the embossed spatter prevented the inked block from reaching the paper.

I hope you can see the embossed splatters on the flowers, they are done with Iridescent Ice on coffee filters I die-cut with the Floral framelits, embossed, then sponged the color on. I was going for raindrops as the effect on both the panel and the flowers.


I repeated the same effect on the inside. It could have been a little smaller. BUT, I am typing this up late Sunday evening and still have at least one more idea I want to get on this hop before midnight. Priorities I tell you!

I had to make a coordinating tag for this card. This one I just sponged over the embossing on the tag, no Acrylic Block stamping on this one.

Here is my take on grunge rainbow, and some mud! I had to do some mud :) The rainbow and mud is more emboss resist with clear embossing powder on Crumb Cake paper. I used a retired embossing folder, Cloudy Day from last year's Occasion Mini. You probably have it in your stash too, it was just too darn cute to skip! But in case you did, it is currently on the clearance rack for a steal ;) The sentiment is something I typed up on MDS and printed out. Sometimes you just gotta do that to get the phrase you want.  With MDS, it is easy to get the right size with no trial and error. When I printed it out, I thought I messed up because it looked so big on the sheet of card stock. Then I cut the strips out, and they were just the size I was looking for!

The sentiment continues inside. I can see sending this to my nieces and nephews, they would love to play in the mud with me. Although, we will have to wait a few months to FIND any mud to play in here, lol! I am hoping for a little in April....but more likely it will be mid to late May.
Well, that's it for me folks, time to go visit Debra's blog and see what she has in store for us!

Oh Tanya, your cards are awesome! The first one is a beautiful combination of techniques and the second one is so FUN! I never heard that saying before and it made me chuckle. That saying, combined with the "mud" and boots is a winner.
