Colourful Grunge

Welcome



My starting point for this card was Lozzy's Dark Grunge paper in blue, over which I laid some stripes of card in a rainbow sequence, and then embossed. 


I then cut circles from the same card snippets, stamped the letters on them from an unknown alpha set, set the die back over the circles and sponged some ink onto them to grunge them a bit more.


The (Kiwistamping) stamp was masked before inking to get just the lower part of the sentiment, which was coloured in the same rainbow sequence and then had glossy accents added for some dimension.  The panel was then trimmed, sponged with black ink and adhered.

As I am out of town when this is due, and  this is a scheduled post, I am not at this point linking with any challenges.
