So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!
I don’t use this stamp set as often as I thought I would I have to admit… but know how useful they can be for adding pattern and texture to journal pages… yes it’s Gorgeous Grunge.
Decided to see if I could turn these cute digi stamps from Polkadoodles unto something grungey?
I had coloured them both with Promarkers and used the same colour palette of browns and yellows but thought I would challenge myself despite this start to end up with two different looking projects.
First the boy… I layered the stamps straight onto the blue card blank keeping to black ink. I added the digi stamp with some foam tape to raise him up. Finally added some blue stickles.
Next the cute bear and cat…
This time I chose a shaped card blank and used bright colours for the stamping and a coordinating green ribbon.
Of course I also added some clear stickles.
Love how these both look… simple and easy to achieve with the versatile stamps for the background.
