Grungy Monday 13-Alcohol Inks

For this week's challenge for Grungy Monday over at Studio L3 we were to use Alcohol Inks!
They are among some of my favorite supplies! I found some Stampbord that I had forgotten I had, so I set out to use it today!
Stamps are from I Brake For Stamps:
As you can see from the closeup its very dimensional-3 layers of Stampbord :)

I Brake For Challenges: Techniquing It Up

This is for a brand new challenge-I Brake For Challenges! This week we were supposed to be using ANY technique. Being I got some new Acrylic Paint Dabbers I thought I would try a Tim Holtz Technique called Dabber Resist. This stamp is called Ornate Inchies Background and is from I Brake For Stamps

Grungy Monday 10: Distress Ink O'Rama

For this weeks Grungy Monday Challenge over at Studio L3 we were challenged to use Distress inks! Being that I use them all the time, this was easy :)

I used a technique from the recent Technique Junkies Newsletter called Ghost in Distress. This is actually a Flip Flap Fold Card-the technique is on the Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD. It was fun to do something a little different today :)

Stamps used from I Brake For Stamps:

Script from ATC Sheet

Also used some mini staples, Some of Tim's Kraft Glassine (behind pears) and some ribbon!

Grungy Monday 9:Shabby Chic

This is my Contribution for the Grungy Monday Challenge #9 over at Studio L3.

I caved and went and bought some Acryic Paint Dabbers for this technique. I didn't think I would really need to, but I have seen so many cool techniques using them that I decided to pick them up :)

Anyway-really fun technique for sure!

Stamps are from I Brake For Stamps and use these two sheets:

Leo's Art (one of my all time favorites)

and the mesh stamp from Beach Memoirs
