Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop! We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday. This round we are looking at the "crime scene" set, Gorgeous Grunge. This set is perfect for adding the little touch to any background.
Gorgeous Grunge (#130517)
This is the first stop from the top, but if you are hopping around in a circle, you have just come from Nancy's beautiful blog. For my stop, my initial thought for this set was paint splatter. This set is great for getting the splatter look without the mess. I was off to find an image in My Digital Studio that would work. There is a paint palette in the School Days II download, but I went with a paint bucket from A Year Celebrated 2014 download.
Mojo Monday sketch #332.
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Loving Thoughts; Paper: Whisper White, Corrugated Cardboard; Ink Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Pacific Point, Real Red, Black Stazon; Accessories: Rhinstone jewels, Chalk Talk framelits, Big Shot, e-cutter; MDS Elements: A Year Celebrated 2014.
I thought the smaller splatter image could also pass for an outer space background. With that in mind, the focus for this card is an alien.
Mix-Ability #34 Paint X2, use any two types of ink/paint for your project, and the design was inspired by a card by Chen Zax. The sketchy gel pen outline isn't normally my style, so it was so fun to break out of the mold a bit.
Stamps: Blast Off, Gorgeous Grunge; Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Basic Black, Whisper White, Whisper White Core'dinations, Sweet Sorbet DSP, Window sheet; Ink: Wild Wasabi, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler, Silver Encore, Crushed Curry marker, Cajun Craze marker; Accessories: Crushed Curry chevron ribbon, Clear embossing powder, White gel pen, Shaker Frames, Craft knife, Sponges, Tasteful Trim die, Big Shot, White acrylic paint, Sewing machine, Thread, Stapler.
Speaking of crime scenes, someone had to do it. I created this card for a twisted humor swap at our local shoebox swap.
