CofC 29 - WEATHERED GRUNGE


Hi, thought I would have a go at doing something a little different for me with the lovely Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge 29 Weathered Grunge (page 50).

Stamps used, BLine and Craft Lounge; Tim Holtz Die, Sizzix Die and a TH Texture Fade. Other products were Gold Paint Dabber, Tea Dye Distress, Aqua Paint Dabber, Baby Blue Stickles.

As yet not sure whether to put this onto a Valentines card or make it into a Hanging or Magnet etc, so leaving it as it is at present. There are some fab examples of this weathered grunge over at Linda's StudioL3 so if you get the time pop over and have a look you will be amazed.

Thank you for popping in and for all your great support, wishing you a happy day and take care, Annette x
PS. Am having problems with blogger at the moment. Cannot follow a new blog with my photo enclosed, think it wants me to be incognito.........and also some comments are not being allowed even though they are not spam. Will try and fix it, but not sure how. If anyone has any ideas please email me I would be grateful.

Oh this is wonderful! You could also add a long narrow dowel rod (stick) to the back and display it stuck into a house plant.

I can see why you're having a hard time deciding what to do with it because there are so many possibilities! It would be great on a card, or as a focal for a framed collage piece or as is or or or ! It's fantastic!

Beverly Gotthardt said...

She looks very queenly smug,another wonderful piece.The way you photo'd her she looks like she has arms and the beginning of a waist so I can imagine a big full skirt to finish out her gown, she could morph into a doll.So much for my 2 cents.

Chris said...

Beautiful piece Netty. Love the colors. As for your blogger I would go on to the help forum you may see someone else that had the same problem.
Hugs, Chris
