grungy monday18

hi world
it's tuesday again so soon  ( but only 11 days and counting until the wedding) and time for my grungy monday piece. look here at Linda ledbetters blog  studiol3.blogspot. to see what it is all about and here  at Tim Holtz web site for  this weeks challenge .

Anyway I needed to make a birthday card for a friend and my challenge piece so I combined the two, fine I hear you cry, but jane is not very grungy, she is a girly girl so not so simple. but I think it is ok and hope she will like it
Here's my card. The background paper is from a 'Smirk' pack I brought at 'Make it ' earlier in the year. For those of you that think it's cheating this is what the paper looked like before I grunged it up!

This is what I used
Mahogany and lipstick DI
stamp from  papermania (3 for 2 big greetings! )
Aqua promarkers
Sakura pens
Brads and heart charms  -- from stash
think it is changed enough to call grungy but light and girly enough for jane
job done

PS here are a couple of cards I made at the weekend

well lets see what you have made
bye till next time


  1. Very cute! I love the way you've changed the paper and added your spin on the bling! Great job!

  2. Lovely cards! I like the way you've coloured the vellum on the first one:)

  3. Love your challenge card and the other two as well!
