White Space / or Colourful Grunge




The new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is White Space /OR Colourful Grunge - what will you choose?

I've opted for a colourful grunge background by using a piece of mop up card - believe it or not - the pale areas on here are watery pinks, although it's difficult to tell - I've then added some Peacock Feathers DI using a piece of acetate.  I stamped my image and doodled the frame ( a great technique shown by Tracy Evans)  I stamped the flower heads again, fussy cut and coloured with DIs and added a little black glitter to the centers.  I've framed the sentiment with a piece of vellum.

The Design Team have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, and you'll also find all the challenge details and some news as we are having a DT call for TioT.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

I agree with the others who say white space. That's what I thought you were doing here! haha Guess I consider grunge to be a lot grungier, lol. Either way, it's a very pretty card. I like some of Tracy Evans stuff and read her blog when I can, her techniques are nice and you have done the doodling well. xoxo

Another beautiful floral stamp - I love these ones with the flower stem and then the collaged text or graphics around them. The tall format of the card really adds to the look here too.
