'Grunge Cards' by Amy C

Hi All!

Amy here with you today - sharing handmade 'Grunge Cards'.


Being a mum of boys, I like to have handmade cards in our cardbox for my boys to be able to go with their friends' gifts.



For these cards I used some Colour Blast Colour Spray in 'Lagoon' and Colour Artist Ink in 'Lime' for the background.

After both of the backgrounds had dried I did some stamping.

The 'Life is Tough' stamp set by Colour Blast was the perfect set up for my grunge theme.

I used the sentiment from this stamp set on the lime card as pictured.


I used various images from this stamp set on both cards.



To add more detail over the stamped background I used a make-up sponge to smooth some Black Heavy Gesso through the 'That Way' stencil over various parts of the cards.


Finally, I added a few splatters of Colour Spray in 'Road Base' randomly around the cards.

Once dried, I added a few embellishments fro my stash. 

Here are some close ups of the finer details.



Thank you for stopping by. I hope it leaves you feeling inspired - happy creating!

Amy 😊
