Grungy Monday #16-Grungeboard Extravaganza








This week for the Grungy Monday Challenge over at Studio L3 its a Grungeboard Extravaganza!
I made a mini book from Grungepaper I cut using a Sizzix die of a File Folder (have had it forever!) for the covers and it has cardstock pages.  I embossed the grungepaper with a cuttlebug folder and applied a white ranger paintdabber and sanded it off the raised areas then applied Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  It needed more so I stamped images from I Brake For Stamps for more contrast. I cut out the center using Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four. I attached a grungeboard heart with mini staples and a washer that was distressed with Distress Powder. The Mona Lisa collage image is actually one I designed some time ago (grin) and she really called to me today, so I used her for the focal image.  I used the Water Stamping technique over her using a background image of Postmarks :) It is put together with large jumprings :)

This looks awesome, Kristy! I love that you used the file folder die for your mini book-- it's a great design and gives the piece so much character. THe stamping is great, and your Mona Lisa collage is sensational! What a lovely piece for the Grungeboard challenge!
