Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew blog hop. This week we’re featuring Gorgeous Grunge and once again I am the last stop on the hop. But if you missed any of the blogs getting here, you can click on any of the inks below.
I am still working on figuring out what my “style” is, but after this challenge I think I can safely say it’s not Grunge. But challenges are all about getting outside your comfort zone and trying new things. Don’t get me wrong – I love grunge. Some people do it so well, as you’ve already seen on this blog hop.
racking my brain thinking about this challenge for awhile to figure out what I wanted to do. I love the spots and blobs in this set for giving a card an aged look, but I was having trouble coming up with a focal point. Then when I was cleaning out my studio, I found a handful of Orange Crush pop tops. I don’t remember why I saved these. I may have had something really cool in mind to do. Or it could be my son just dumped his trash in my room (it’s been known to happen), but I thought they might look cool on a card. They didn’t go through my Big Shot quite like I thought they would, but that just adds to the grunge look. So here is my “I’ve got an (orange) crush on you” card.
The colors on the pop top were very close to Pumpkin Pie and Gumball Green, so I started with these colors. I added the wings from Great Sport using Basic Gray. I kind of like it. But it also kind of looks like I spilled Orange Crush on my card. Maybe that’s the point. 🙂 What do you think?
